WILLOW AND POPLAR CUTTINGS & SETS

 

Most Salix (Willow) and some Populus (Poplars) can easily be grown from unrooted hardwood cuttings and sets, inserted vertically into the soil. Often trees raised in this way in their final planting positions grow better and faster than young plants which are already rooted. Expect a minimum of 3-4ft of growth in average conditions and 6-8ft at best over a season. Cuttings are taken from our nurtured mother plants to produce quality planting material.
