The Q&A Archives: Weeping Willow

Question: I need to know if my wilow is a lost cause. The late freeze got it. Most of the branches are still pliable but I have no new buds. I gave it food and have been watering it. So far nothing.
What can I do?

Answer: Don't give up on your willow just yet. Even though the top was frostbitten, the roots should still be okay. You can scrape the bark off the branch and look for green tissue. If so, that branch is alive. Give your willow time to recover and I think you'll see new growth. Good luck with your garden!
