Hi guys, As a complete novice to gardening I have a couple of questions regarding a half standard Kilmarnock willow that I recently purchased. Currently they are both planted in large containers, however - taking into account the harsh winters of the past two years, would it be more beneficial for them to be planted in the ground? Also, a few weeks back I noticed that they were both crawling with little critters. After reading a plethora of information on how to get rid of the pests I blasted them with the hose. Later on that evening I noticed that a fair amount of the leaves had dried up and turned brown. Needless to say it looks rather sorry for itself. Can this be fixed - if indeed it can be?
