Kilmarnock Willows Are Suffering From Leaf Curl

Question From: K. Norman - Houston, Texas, United States
Q: i have 2 Kilmarnock Willows and they are both suffering leaf curl any ideas on treatment I should use?

A: Karen, cut off a few branch tips with leaves and take them to your local independent garden center for a first hand ID. There are several reasons for leaf curl. One is aphids - you should be able to see them on close inspection. Winter damage - dry conditions will do it, but so will some fungal inspections. So take it samples to a nursery that sells these plants. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
