Golden Curls Willow is a very attractive plant with branches that twist and turn like a pigs tail, but they can get big.  One of Our Members, Roger Higgins from Roger’s Backyard Nursery in Cranesville, Pennsylvania, has a very unusual approach to growing and selling this tree.

A late friend of mine discovered and brought this plant to market many, many years ago.  The very first one he found was growing next to his pond.  He showed me how he started them using cuttings as long as 40 inches, which is kinda crazy,. Most plants would never root with a cutting that long.  Most cuttings are four to five inches long.

I shared that strategy in Our Members Area and Roger took to using it.

But then he add a new twist, get it “New Twist”.  He started putting these three to a container and braids them together.

Look closely at the plant that Roger is holding. He’ has three plants per pot, braided together.  He sells these as patio plants for people to put in a container on the patio.
