Shade Providing Weeping Willow
Weeping Willow tree is best known for its graceful, ground-sweeping branches. With its romantic and magical appearance the Weeping Willow has so much more to offer than just another green tree. It is one of the fastest growing shade trees in any area. With a growth rate of 6 to 8 feet per year it will quickly reach its mature height of 30-50 feet. The Weeping Willow tree loves water and is often planted near ponds to prevent erosion. There is no such thing as too much water for a Weeping Willow tree so if you have a spot in your yard that stays wet or collects water, the Weeping Willow will help dry it right up.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Weeping Willow Tree plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Weeping Willow to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occuring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
