Kilmarnock Willow


Kilmarnock Willow (Salix caprea)

Moved from its corner home where it suffered some damage when the fences came down in the wind at New Year.
This little raised bed is where a massive lump of concrete is buried. I tried to plant it up with some perennials but the drainage wasn't great so most of these have been removed. The ones that are left are not directly over the concrete and seem to be doing ok.
I hope it likes it here!

Never gave it much of a thought Oji - 'til Karenfrance showed a picture of her new one the other day - hope yours is full of leaf soon.
Cheers Paul :)
Karenfrance....you made me appreciate it more :))
Thank you Junna - once the leaves fill out and the branches grow back down a bit it will look more prettier :)
