Weeping Willows

Weeping Willows

Weeping willows are deciduous trees originating from China which are renowned for their attractive fluffy catkins in spring time and colourful bark. They were introduced to Europe and the Americas as ornamental trees and are now well recognised due to their large characteristic canopy, short trunk and lance-shaped bright green leaves. Weeping Willows form dense root-mats on the soil's surface or in shallow nearby water. They reproduce by dropping seeds which have long silk like hairs forming a small parachute. These seeds can then be carried for many miles by water or wind.

 Larger willows are best suited to a larger garden and look especially attractive when waterside. Smaller willows are perfect for any garden and are an ideal solution for planting in moist but well drained soils. Weeping Willows are very easy to grow and can be trimmed in late Winter or early Spring. If planting trees staking is often needed, but it should be no higher than 60cm (2ft) above the ground. Tree Staking Advice.

Plant Weeping Willows in moist fertile soil. They are also very hungry feeders and are particularly partial to a bit of Growmore.
