Regarding the air-layering, it's only necessary to have a vertical branch if
you are using the device you all have been talking about. The old fashioned
way, using wraps and tapes, can be done on a horizontal branch as well.
However, in my somewhat limited experience, either way(horizontal or
vertical) will work, and Pam, your viburnam's are among the easiest to air
layer or start from cuttings. Rich in Z-5 where today's high will almost
reach 70.
