      How To Plant Niobe Golden Weeping Willow

      Willows are just plain easy to grow. These large, yet delicate, trees can create quite a focal point in the garden. They tolerate most soil conditions, including wet soils. They aren’t too keen on dry soil conditions, but they do enjoy being planted in full sun. Did you know that a substance taken from the bark of the Willow tree is used to produce salicylic acid? Salicylic acid is used to make aspirin, dyes, and it even helps to preserve food. Willow trees are aggressive growers and can grow to be quite large. To help them grow into healthy large trees, apply a dose of medium rate fertilizer once a year in the fall. You should only do this for about the first 3 or 4 years. You shouldn’t have to prune too often, just prune when you feel it is necessary. Willow trees are free of any major pest or disease problems. When your Willow tree is young, however, keep the trunk of your young Willow protected – ‘cause deer love ‘em!

      How To Water

      Willow trees will appreciate watering deeply, and regularly during its first few years in the ground. Irrigate weekly, and especially during long dry spells or extreme heat after it’s established.

      How To Fertilize

      Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

      How Does Shipping Work?

      Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

      *For Big trees and Shrubs, Size XL and bigger: Review our Seasonal Shipping Timelines and Policy here.

      Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

      Shipping Delays:

      From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

      How Does Sizing Work?

      The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

      Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

      All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!

      Like all the 20+ trees and shrubs I’ve bought from Bower and Branch over the years, my Niobe Willow arrived in excellent condition, very healthy and lush, and even larger than I’d ordered or expected. In just the first year it filled out nicely and after two full growing seasons has nearly doubled in size - both width and height. I keep it watered deeply 2x a week and mulched a 10’ circle around the base which has helped develop an extensive root system. My only (big) mistake was not protecting the truck over the winter, so the deer did some damage scratching with their antlers but thankfully it was not extensive and so far hasn’t effected the overall health or growth of the tree.
