I've acquired some rooted holly cuttings that I intend to plant out in the field.
The cuttings were rooted in media and I obtained the cuttings with an intact root-media ball.
When planting a cutting like this, should media be removed until the first roots become visible?
Good planting practices indicate that the root flare of a tree should be visible when planting. Does the same apply to a cutting?
The cuttings had about an inch of the branch buried in media before the first roots began to appear, which I removed before planting in an intermediate container while they acclimate.
