Propagation question on Shrubs

mary_maxOctober 23, 2013

I have propagated several branches of a pussy willow bush. I have four branches about the size of a finger in a pot. They are all growing and have been for the last year. My question is. Is each branch I stuck in the pot a shrub or can the four branches be planted out as one shrub? Thanks

Planting all four together (in the same planting hole) will produce a bigger shrub somewhat (probably not much) faster than a single cutting would. However, planting each cuttings separately will give you four times the pussy willows. Either option is fine.
