Dear Broobit, I looked at your details to find out if you are further north than I, but it just says 'Adur' which I have never heard of. I am in the Fens, near Kings Lynn in Norfolk and I have just had a look at my twisted willow - I am assuming that is the same as a corkscrew willow - and though it has had a hard life (moved 10 years ago, fell over 3 years ago, now supported by a crutch) it allready has leaves about 1.5 cm long. I would wait another few weeks and make sure it is well watered, they are thirsty things, possibly give it a feed. My Campsis was very slow in starting one year and I gave it a general plant feed and it really improved.
