 Willow Cuttings, Rods & Structure Kits - See online Shop, 0.25M to 3.5M Long

 

Cuttings

Willow will grow readily from stem cuttings making propagation very straightforward. Live willow cuttings are available from 1st December to the end of March. They are 25cm long and vary in thickness depending on the variety chosen. See 'Willow Varieties' section for list of the varieties offered along with a brief description. We offer cuttings in single, or bundles or 10/100/1000 for all 17 of the varieties we grow.

Orders can be placed all year, however delivery for orders placed out of season will not be until 1st week of December. The key to successfully growing willow from cuttings is dealing with weeds. The easiest method being use of a membrane to plant the cuttings through, see 'Planting' page on this site.

See 'Online Shop' pages 1 to 7 for pricing & ordering of bundles of cuttings.

 

 

   

   

Rods

Willow 'Rods' are offered for a number of the varieties we grow which lend themselves to producing straight long stems with few side shoots. These are offered in 1,5m, 2.0m, 2.5m, 3.0m & 3.5m lengths, and in bundles of 10, 100, and 1000. The best variety for producing good rods is Salix Viminalis.

The rods are superb for building 'Living Willow' structures, Fedges, or simple hedges, see 'Living Structures' section on this site for detailed information, examples, and photos.

See 'Online Shop' pages 1 to 7 for pricing & ordering of bundles of rods.

 

   

       

Kits

One of the more recent uses for willow is to create living willow structures. Living willow structures and sculptures are very easy to make. Children love constructing domes and tunnels with willow because it requires little skill and lots of imagination. Living willow fences, ‘fedges’, are also an attractive alternative to conventional fencing. We supply kits as per below, see 'Living Structures' section on this site for detailed information, examples, and photos.

- Sketches and photos of all stages of build.

- Detailed written instructions.
- Appropriate numbers & sizes of Willow rods for design.
- Weed suppressing membrane, heavy duty type that lets water through is ideal.
- Pegs to hold down membrane.

- String or gardening twine to tie in the willow weave.

Nb. You may find you need a bar or metal stake to help create holes if the ground is hard, we do not provide these.

The photo to the right is kit for construction of 6m of large tunnel using 74 x 3m Rods.

See 'Online Shop' page 7 for pricing & ordering of kits.
