At this time dead and shriveled branches should be removed. This tree requires a lower amount of water and is compatible with salty soil also. The stalk of the tree is placed in a pit at a depth of 30 cm to allow air circulation and water penetration. Barberry is harvested and available in the middle of September up to the end of October.
