    My Young Weeping Willows are Dying!!

    I planted three weeping willows about 2 months ago, they are about 12 inches high. Three days ago my husband poured fertilizer around all three trees and today all their leaves have all dried and fallen off. Can it be that the fertilizer are killing them?? Any suggestions on what I can do to save them??

    Trees need natural fertilizer - i.e. decaying mulch, fallen leaves, and other organic matter. Adding fertilizer is a good way to damage them, and, even if the fertilizer didn't *cause* the problem, it certainly didn't help.

    They were growing wonderfully and within that three day span all of them wilted and dried up, I don't know if I should keep watering them to see if they will survive, or if I should replace them. I have been watering them, and have not done anything different which makes me wonder what would cause them to die.

    Yes I think the fertilizer is the culprit although weeping willows do require a lot of water... something I don't exactly associate with new mexico. Do they grow there well normally? Do you see adult weeping willows around?

    They are EVERYWHERE I have been watering them regularly and like I said they took off and were growing quite fast. I heard they were pretty hardy trees, should I keep watering them to see if they will come back?

    If that's the case then I'd make sure no one pours fertilizer on or around them again.
