Full Answer

Weeping willow cuttings are best taken during the dormant season - late fall or early winter. Use a sharp knife and cut a strong branch between 1 and 6 feet long. After choosing an open planting site well away from the septic system, if there is one on the property, dig a hole deep enough to accommodate two-thirds of the cutting. Place the cut end of the branch into the hole. Water and fertilize well, mulching at the onset of spring.
