Pussy willows really grow best with ample moisture, so you might try a top dressing of compost and possibly some general purpose granular or slow release fertilizer applied per the label directions, and keeping it evenly moist. A two to three inch deep layer of organic mulch can also help in keeping the soil moister longer during dry spells. If you pruned off more than 25 percent or so of the branches you may see an incredible amount of growth regardless as it rebounds on the established root system. Enjoy your pussy willow!
