I have some good roots on my willow tree branches that I started indoors. they are in water. I think its to cold to send them outside, should I pot them and leave them in the house until Spring?

I agree with you - setting it outdoors now might be too much of a shock. Willow trees go dormant over the winter months so you can safely pot them up and keep them in a cool place such as an unheated basement or garage. As long as temperatures remain above freezing they will go into a normal dormancy period and will perk up in the spring. Or you can pot them up and grow them in normal indoor temperatures. They won't go dormant as long as the temperatures remain around 70F. Best wishes with your willows.
