Hi, My wife and I have a "Saxis" Ornamental Willow tree in our back garden, we are planning an extension, and need to move said tree. Our plans are to move this beauty into our front garden, can you please offer any advise to help maximise the tree's chances of survival during and following the move?
Much appreciated,
Yours Neil.

Hi Neil,

I don't know if you've moved your tree by now, but more info would be needed to really help. Just saying ornamental willow or Salix isn't enough as there are so many different ones.

Is this a dwarf variety of willow or a full sized weeping willow? Do you have a better name for us?

How big is the tree in height and width of the trunk?

When you do need to move it?

Maybe some of this will help.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
