Answer: It's normal for newly installed plants to go through an adjustment period. While their roots are becoming established, leaves can wilt, turn yellow and even drop. But, by the end of 3 weeks, they should be perking up. Although Salix loves water, I think it's important that you allow the soil to dry out between waterings so the roots get their oxygen requirements. Try watering deeply only once or twice a week rather than watering on a daily basis. This will allow the soil to be saturated and then to dry out enough to restore the needed oxygen between the soil particles. I suspect it will take another 2-3 weeks for your Salix to begin to perk up. Best wishes with them!
