Weeping Pussy willow

Zone Sevierville, TN zone 7 | moldmaker70 added on January 10, 2017 | Answered

I have a weeping pussy willow that has a lot of suckers at the base of it. When should I cut these off? It is winter here in Tennessee, so should I wait until spring? Thank you, James.

The best time to prune a pussy willow is in late winter or very early spring. I think that suckers can be cut off at any time of year, though, since these are growths that the plant doesn't need.
