Description
Widely known for its delicate catkins in spring, Salix caprea, or Pussy Willow as it's more commonly known is also an extremely useful hedging plant. Perfect for planting in poorly draining areas, salix will often flourish in places where other hedging will not and, providing it has plenty of sunlight, will form a thicket of interwoven branches that will form an effective barrier all year round. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 45cm (18"). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Plant Willow in moist soil that is also well drained. When initially planting, ensure plenty of compost or organic matter is incorporated into the planting hole to give the plant the best possible start.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
Water well until established, prune out dead or old wood to encourage new shoots to appear.
