I lost a large pussy Willow in the storm, and took a load of cuttings, but I don't think they've taken yet. They haven't died either.
I was in the local garden centre the other day, and saw a nice ramshackle weeping dwarf willow, a decorative small tree. And couldn't resist it. When I went to grab the tree, two roots had escaped the pot, and were making a run for it. I tried to remove the roots, but did snap the ends off of one. I bought it none the less and planted it out yesterday. And have lightly pruned it today.
It's located at the bottom of a bank, I'm hoping the small amount of root damage won't hurt. But I was wondering whether I should have cut the roots back to encourage regeneration?
I just buried them as is with a good spread, planted it and hoped for the best. Do you think it will be okay?
Is there anything that will help her along?
