Q.Willow Hybrid Trees
My willow hybrids were planted last April. They had a very slow start. Leaves were green, not too many and not a lot of fullness. This year they look brown and twiggy. Seem to have sprouts. Do you think they still have a chance on growing? They do not look too healthy. What should I do? Give it some time, or do think they could be dead? I gave them some Miracle Gro food last week. Our weather hasn’t been the greatest…cold and not much sun. We live in Buffalo.
