Dazzling Summer Foliage

The glistening leaves of a willow reflected off of the water never fails to light up a river bank. In mid summer the foliage lighten to create a golden cascade which catch the suns lights brilliantly. Light from below at night to create a truly magical display and extend your viewing hours well past dusk.

Elegant Weeping Shape

The silhouette of a weeping willow is unmistakable. The elegant weeping shape droops over the ground adding interest and structure to any space. The size of mature willows allows you to use it's weeping shape to create screening or you can use it as a standalone feature piece. Willows tend to be multi-stemmed as young trees but over time a main trunk will emerge, you can speed this process up by removing weaker stems and training a leader against a stake.

Planting and Care

Suited to almost all moderately fertile soils with a good tolerance to wet ground Willows prefer a soil with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun or with a little shade. Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established. Autum is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Keep a planting distance of 8m.

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

"The product supplied was clearly misdescribed either by Primrose or their supplier as the plant arrived with a description identifying very different growth characteristics. Sales support would not arrange for the collection of the plant at their cost which is at odds with the Distance selling Regulations. PAYPAL had to intervene and provided reimbursement in full. PRIMROSE appear to use drop shippers and neither receive the plants into stock or have any way to maintain quality control. My advice to other purchasers is to use a different company on ALL occasions."
