Salix Caprea Pendula Tree

Kilmarnock Willow Trees

from £29.99 (ex. VAT)
( £35.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This dwarf tree has heavily pendulous branches that boast bright yellow furry catkins in the spring. The mid-green leaves have soft grey undersides and cloth the branches attractively throughout the year. This small garden tree is most at home next to water, although it can be container grown if a watering regime is established.

The architectural shape of the Weeping Pussy Willow tree looks stunning in the winter when covered in frost or snow. Expect a height and spread of 2.5 x 2.5 metres in 20 years, less if kept in a container. We have this tree in two sizes, both premium quality - the 10L pot version is a stunning instant solution with a mature, well trained weeping habit.

Planting Advice for Salix Caprea Pendula trees

When planting Willow trees, such as the Kilmarnock willow, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown salix trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Kilmarnock Willow trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Weeping Pussy Willow trees

Allow your young willow tree to grow unpruned for the first year. This will give it the time it needs to develop a natural shape. From then on you can prune damaged, or diseased branches at any time of the year.

To encourage a clear stem, prune the lower branches in winter.
