Dwarf Weeping Willow - Kilmarnock Willow

Description

This is an excellent weeping willow for small gardens - usually grown to a height of 5-6 feet.  It has a weeping form of grey sallow (Salix cinerea) grafted on to a long straight stem.  It is readily available from large garden centres and is best planted in late winter in frost free conditions.

Pruning

Pruning is best carried out in the winter.

Step 1: Prune back any shoots coming off the main stem - these will not be of the weeping variety.

Step 2: Prune any dead branches or branches that are rubbing - these rub wounds allow disease to enter the tree.  Prune the branch back to its parent branch leaving a stub of a few millimetres.

Step 3: Every 4 or 5 years prune the branches four fifths of the way back to the main stem - This will allow plenty of young growth and it is only young growth that has a profusion of catkins.
