These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year. If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.The White willow should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.
Cultivation White willow
As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. This plant in the winter assumes a yellow colouring; it is large in size and can reach 15 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards.
Fertilize White willow
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.
Water White willow
Water regularly, every 2-3 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 2-3 buckets of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.
Pests White willow
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Mold White willow
