West Sussex, United Kingdom
Four years ago I gave my cousin a weeping 'pussy willow' and for two years it was lovely. Then the weeping branches began to grow too long for the trunk so that they reached the ground and grew outwards over the grass. My cousin trimmed them back but they did the same the following year. Can you tell me what we should have done at this point? I went over this week and to my horror she has given the poor tree a number 2 haircut and the branches are turning upward. Is a rescue possible??
