I just tried to force some pussy willow for indoor arrangements. I did everything just like every instruction I've read on the web and in magazines---but I've gotten only leaves--no catkins. Any ideas what went wrong? I've now got enough willow plants to start a little forest, but not the loovely pussy willow aarrangement I wanted!

RE: pussy willow forcing

I have just cut my pussy willow...I have 3 bushes in my guess is that you have cut them to early...they have to have alot of tight buds showing before they will open when forced. Let them grow a little more on the careful when you force them and not let them stay in water to long are they will open to much. Hope this info helps. Nora P.S. when you cut them...cut at an angle...then take a hammer and hit the ends several times...this will allow them to drink the water good.
