Hello, yesterday our willow leaves were transferred from being 100% soaked in a honey water solution into a damp soil. However, today we noticed that the leaves were yellowing and falling off. To make matters worse, we noticed pink root buds forming along the entire cutting Grumbling . At this point should be just plant the whole cutting under the soil? Will it still grow up!? How damp should we keep the soil!? ... yes, this is a new guy mistake Sad
