Feed 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.

Care Willow
As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. This plant in the spring assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 8 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards.

Irrigation WillowTenere Umido
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. Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 2-3 weeks can be enough using 2-3 buckets of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering.

Adversity 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.

Substrate Willow
Locate these trees in a soil with average drainage, which slightly withholds humidity.
