Hey!

I have couple of weeping willow and goat willow branches in the ground (put them there in early spring). They all grow vigorously and are really healthy.

What i would like to know is when should i pot them, how many years should i leave them in ground and how many years should i leave them in large pot. What's is the common practice for that case? Is there any special care involved while they are in ground?

Thanks for all the answers!

Willows grow like crazy. As long as it has a good root base I would get it out of the ground before you can't. Most willows can grow 5'-10' in a year.

I would dig them the minute the diameters of the trunk reach the diameter you envision for your trees. Or dig every second summer, prune roots and put back in ground. Leave them unattended for 3 summers and you may never be able to dig them up again due to massive roots.
