I am in a very exposed windy site and I planted mine out last weekend. No cloches, just open. This weekend they look fantastic.

I think the advertising companies  pays a small contribution to the mag for enclosing their leaflets.

I loved that Small garden handbook, the single leaflets have been shredded for the compost heap so the tree didnt die in vain.

If you have had to reduce the willow tree by 60% it must be some size.  They have very strong roots that will break through concrete, I remember a neighbour had one come up the u bend in the toilet.  I hope its not your roots that have damaged the neighbours drainage.
