The perfect specimen for small spaces!
Absolutely breathtaking, this spectacular small weeping tree is the female form of the Kilmarnock Willow. It makes the perfect small-space specimen or accent planting in any moist to wet soil.

Discovered on the banks of the River Ayr sometome before 1853, and introduced by Scottish nurseryman Thomas Lang, this Weeping Pussy Willow offers graceful, pendulous branches clothed in silky silver catkins that appear in early spring before the shiny foliage. The branches cascade beautifully right down to the ground around a slender trunk.

Ideal for small gardens, its graceful form, foliage and flowers provide year-round interest. Expect it to reach just 6 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide in 10 years. Best in moist to damp soil. Zones 4-9.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
