Planting Instructions

Planting willow cuttings is one of the easiest ways to start new plants! Before planting, it's beneficial to prep the cuttings by soaking them in water for 24 to 48 hours. This helps to encourage root development.

You can also start the cuttings indoors in pots filled with moist soil. This method allows for close monitoring and protection from outdoor elements, providing an ideal start especially in colder climates.

After you soak your cuttings, Choose a sunny to partially shaded location with moist, well-drained soil for planting. Plant the cuttings deep enough, with about two-thirds of their length underground, to ensure stability and adequate root formation. After planting, water the cuttings thoroughly and maintain consistent soil moisture as they establish.

We understand the importance of clear guidance, so with every order of willow cuttings, we provide comprehensive planting instructions. These instructions cover everything from the initial soaking and potting to outdoor planting and care, ensuring your willow cuttings get the best possible start.
