We brought some long pussy willow branches in a couple weeks ago...They have their fuzzy blooms on them...
Question....do we keep the water in the vase after they bloom?? If so.... how long?
We took the water out and saw some of the fuzzy blooms drooping....

Please Help!!
Greg

? Question Greg...
What is it you're tryin' to do with the
pussywillow branches???

Are you tryin' to reroot them?

Or just have forced branches in the house as a floral type arrangement? Duh

Greg, you threw the willow water out? I would have saved it. Geesh, I lost my willow water source when my friend sold her house.

It was just water from the outside tap. We put some water back in the vase and they perked up.

Greg,
If you are ever tryin' to root something..

Take a willow branch, *several* and soak them in water... let sit for a day or three...
and then put in the item you're tryin' to root..

The willow water has the ability to help those
other items send out roots..
*it's a hormone like excreted from the willow branch in the water that entices the other things too root* teech
