Willow water question
Can anyone tell me the color of properly prepared willow water? I am ready to start some softwood cuttings of shrubs and thought I'd soak them in willow water for a while before sticking them. Then would use the willow water to moisten the media.
I brought to a boil a gallon or so of water, threw in about a cup of pencil thick or smaller 1" pieces of willow and let it cool. When I peeked a while ago, it looked like weak tea. Is this the color it should be or should I dilute it??
