Salix Caprea aka Goat Willow or Pussy Willow
Salix Caprea, Pussy Willow is trained as a full standard deciduous tree. Our stock is of a fairly smaller size which makes it ideal for most gardens. It can be kept as a small tree by pruning but if left to itself it will attain a height and width of around 8 metres over 15 years. It is relatively slow growing and generally takes between ten to twenty years to attain its full height. It has a Royal Horticulture Society badge declaring it perfect as a pollinator. A Goat Willow is a beautiful tree which is a perfect willow for small to medium sized gardens.
The upright branches of Pussy Willow are bare during the spring months except for large furry grey/green catkins that create visual interest and contrast to the landscape, the catkins are adored by pollinators. The catkin-laden branches are ideal for creating floral bouquets or drying for crafts. As summer approaches, the soft green leaves start to emerge on the branches. When autumn arrives, the foliage turns a bright golden hue. 
Plant Goat willow in a location in the garden where it will receive full sun for optimum growth. However, it will tolerate partial shade but its growth may be significantly slowed in such a location. It prefers well-draining soil that is moderately fertile. Like most willow varieties, it will withstand waterlogged roots and brief periods of flooding. Plant it in clay, loam, or sandy soil conditions. After planting, keep the soil moderately moist to encourage the tree to establish a strong, diverse root system. After the first year, the tree will be able to withstand short periods of drought. 
The Pussy willow tree’s size and low care requirements make it relatively maintenance free. However, if a branch becomes broken or diseased, it should be pruned away to maintain the tree’s striking appearance. Salix Caprea can also be trimmed during the winter months when the tree is dormant to maintain its shape and size so it's possible to keep this a very manageable sized tree by giving a trim in winter. Pruning tends to stimulate the tree to produce new growth during the spring and summer months
Salix Caprea is a striking addition to any cottage or woodland garden setting. Plant it besides a small garden pond to create a focal point, or next to a patio or walkway where everyone can enjoy its eye-catching catkins during the spring time. 
The Salix Caprea is also often referred to as the pussy willow or the goat’s willow tree. 
More varieties of weeping trees that work very well in smaller gardens include the Weeping Silver Birch tree and the Weeping Silver Pear tree.
