Q: When you buy a tree, is this info ( like life expectancy?) included? Also is it true you can start a tree from a branch off it?
Willows can be started from branch cuttings.
Cut several small diameter twigs and place the cut ends into a good potting soil mixture (the reason
for taking several cuttings is that all of them might not survive). If possible, dip the cut ends into a rooting hormone first.
Water once a week, then transfer the plants once they have established a bit of a root system.
