For some time I had wanted to bonsai a Weeping Willow tree. I could not get a cutting. I mentioned this to a friend who is a professional gardener and within a couple of weeks he delivered a long branch he had saved for me from pruning a big willow tree.
I removed the foliage and the tertiary branches. After that the long branch was cut into four small pieces and left to stand in water in a large watering can.
About four weeks later, all four cutting had developed fine roots and plenty of new green foilage.
It is at this stage that I decided to plant them in plastic nursery pots. About 60% of the pot is filled with horticultural grit, then I have placed a plastic bag, folded and shaped to fit into the pot and sit above the grit. This is the first time I have done this and I am hoping that the roots will develop horizontally as opposed to downwards. I have used ordinary compost to fill the rest of the pot with a cutting in each pot.
The willow tree roots love to be in water and for this reason I have placed the pots in a tray which has at least one inch of water at all times. This was done in the summer three years ago and is in Part 1.
A year and half later they had developed a fair amount of foliage and I repotted them and also pruned them. The Root system was also developing very nicely and they were repotted and pruned. This is covered in the second video – Part 2.
