Hakuro-Nishiki write off?
Morning everyone, a query from the unlearned...I planted out what I think was a pair of Salix integra Hakuro-Nishiki standards both of which I proceeded to neglect. Sensing their demise I removed them from the offending soil and potted them up and hard pruned the pair to remove what was clearly dead wood. Unfortunately this took one of the standards right back to essentially a small bit of material grafted onto the stem/trunk. Is it a write off or might I expect a miraculous recovery? The wood of the grafted material doesn’t look to have any tinges of green through the cross section so I suspect the worst although I’m not sure that’s necessarily game over. All thoughts most welcome and I hope you’re all keeping well. Kind regards james
