My dear friend sent me an e-mail today, which I quote:
--------------------------------------------
Before I go, I was wondering if you know anything about planting
pussywillows in the garden. One of my mother's friends gave her a
small floral arrangement that had a couple of pussywillow branches in
it. After the flowers wilted, I took the branches and placed them in
water and now I have a bunch of tiny roots on each branch. I'm
wondering if I can plant these in the garden and, if so, will they
take. Do you know anything about planting/keeping pussywillow
branches?
----------------------------------------------

Since I know less than nothing about either pussywillows and/or outdoor gardening, I'm throwing myself at the mercy of the experts on this forum [Embarrassed] All tips, tricks and help will be passed on to my friend of course.

Thanks !

[wayey] Hey Canadian Crabgrass!!!
You (or they) should be able to just stick in
into the ground right now....
(I'm no expert here buttttttttttt)
Willows are one of the easiest things to root...

In fact if you take any other branch/cutting in the spring time, and put that in with a piece of willow into a bucket, it's suppose to have a
(*I don't even have a word, but I'll say "chemical" for the lack of a better word*) that emits from the willow, that allows it to help other plant material grow roots better and faster!!!! (so I've read, never did it myself)

But, keep it away from their house, and ceptic and anywhere's there's water coming or going to their house, willow's are notorious for going for water supplies, and shouldn't be kept close to the house... *even the potty drainage*

But you (they) should put it where there is a wet/swampy~like/not fast drainage place of their yard.
They like water!
