I had 2 pussy willow cuttings sent to me from New Jersey in about march (I believe). I received them rooted & potted in little pots.I have had to put them in new pots because of my daughter's puppy (who loves chewing on my pots),luckily he actually does it without hurting the plant.Both plants have a good root ball & have doubled in size since i received them.When is the best time to put them in the ground? Should i wait until fall and keep them in the pots until then.

I have them in direct sun and keeping them moist.I am having a worm problem,if anyone can help with a ID of the worm or what will get rid or them.I found the worm in the picture inside a leaf that was curled around him.

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!
