Watering WillowTenere Umido
During this period of the year the The Willow needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.

Exposure WillowSole pieno
The Willow should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Willow should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.

Generalities Willow
The Willow has a shrub- like development. These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Willow is large in size and 1 m in height; in the spring it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Treatments Willow
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Willow
These plants are planted in a soft, but quite heavy, and not excessively drained soil.
