Willow Salix babylonica

Willow I like the article

Water WillowTenere Umido
The Willow Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 2-3 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 buckets of water . The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.

Light WillowSole pieno
Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. The Willow bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.

Cultivation Willow
The Willow develops like a tree. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. Willow isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 8 m in height.

Pests Willow
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Mold Willow
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
