Growing Calendar for Salix arbuscula Tree - Mountain Willow
Delivery: Early November to Late June
Strong and robust this variety of willow will thrive in a pot on the patio or the balcony or in a sunny or shady bed in your garden that enjoys moist alkaline soils.
Attractive and upright catkins appear in large numbers in May and June amid glossy leaves. This looks lovely with the dark-reddish brown stems that tend to grow more horizontally than vertically. In autumn the leaves turn a creamy buttery yellow.
It’s a great tree for planting under taller trees as it reaches around 60-90cm (2-3 ft) in height at a maximum, and so makes a good understorey plant.
What’s more, it’s dense and spreading habit makes it ideal for wildlife; with birds and mammals taking advantage of the shelter it provides.
Unpack bare root trees immediately and plant as soon as possible after delivery.
Do not let the roots dry out!
If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
Your bare root trees will be delivered at the right time for planting. Normally between autumn and early spring, depending on weather conditions.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
