Salix caprea 'Kilmarnock' (Kilmarnock Willow) - 9L Pot

A bushy tree, this willow has a dense, weeping style to it and provides year-round interest. Bright grey fuzzing anthers emerge from its graceful pendulous shoots in the spring before the rich green ovate foliage appears.

Good in most soils, this tree is hardy, and will prevail through most winters quite easily. It needs very little work, and as such, is an interesting plant to watch grow.

Caring and Maintenance

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.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 2m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
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.

Autumn 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.

"The tree was much smaller than expected and had clearly been re-potted into its advertised 9 litre container from a much smaller one very shortly before dispatch. All of the new potting medium fell off when unpacking to reveal a much smaller root ball. Local garden centre was much better value."
