Does anyone know at what distance (measurement) I should plant a Salix Caprea Pendula to ensure that it does not disturb drains or foundations?



i read they have exstensive roots which will travel to get to water so never plant near water pipes or drains,hope this helps

Thanks Sanbaz

But I really need some measurement.

i read up and it just said extensive so thats means they grow long and deep, maybe you can find something else on web, no good for a small garden i would say, so unless you have a big garden i wouldnt go there
