Directions Step-By-Step

Did ya know....You can make your own "natural" rooting hormone out of willow tree's? Yep, trim off your very new and tender sprouts/leaves/branches, cut them into 2-3 inch snips and boil them just like a tea..yep, it can also be used as a tea to help with mild pain (White willow bark is used to make asprin) After you've made your willow tea, soak plants you wish to root or water plants already in dirt to promote healthy rooting!
Give any trimmings your not going to plant to your elderly animals (any of them) to munch on and ease their pain too, they'll like em cause they are sweet tree's!!
The Willow has TONS of uses, grows in ANY climate and any soil, is great for holding ground such as hills, canals, trenches etc!
