I'm trying to find the best way to propagate weeping willow trees, as they are my favourite type of tree.

I've tried a few times but they just keep dying even though the soil is wet.

Can anyone help me? Thanks.

It's really easy, all you need to do is take a cutting that's about as thick as a pencil, and about 15cm in height. Place the cutting in a cup of water submerging about 5cm in water. After a week, roots specifically designed for being in water will start to develop.

You can then place the cutting in a pot with soil after 2 weeks, keep watering it every day to make sure the roots get enough water, which will then develop into soil roots. After a month, your cutting should have sufficient roots to thrive. I would then advise you to use liquid fertiliser.
