In recent years willow has been recognised as an excellent plant for use as a quick, easy and cost effective hedge or screen. It is now used in gardens, farms and by landowners as simple hedging and screening of unsightly objects & views. It's planted for use as windbreaks as the willow is tolerant of windy, exposed and even coastal conditions. And it's even used to create living structures such as domes, playhouses and tunnels

The ease in which these hedges and structures can be planted means even the non-green fingered among us can create a willow hedge without difficulty. The willow rods are inserted into the ground where they take root and start to grow.

The benefits to wildlife are also worth noting. Willow produces catkins very early in the year providing essential food for bees and insects. They also provide habitats for various birds and bees throughout the year - not to mention grazing fodder for passing deer.

We offer a range of products based around the Willow species Salix viminalis. We offer a range of ready-made kits with everything you need to create willow hedges and screens up to living domes and tunnels. We also supply willow whips and cuttings in bundles along with planting accessories.
