Hedging & Screening

Willow Whips
These willow whips are suitable for planting from Dec through to March/April. Simmply insert into the ground where they will self-root, no digging is required with willow.

Important Note:
When choosing Whip height, remember that 30cm is planted into the ground. So if you want a final height of 1.8m/6ft you need to plant 2.1m/7ft Whips.


Willow Whips for Hedges, Screens and Woven Fencing:

For hedges and screening we recommend and double row planted at 30cm spacing. This means an approx. figure of 6 whips per metre.

For woven fence we recommend approx. 13 whips per metre (depending on design) which gives enough for upright & diagonal whips plus top bars.


Willow Whips for Structures:
For structures intended for adults we use 9ft/2.7m Whips for the basic structure (plus shorter whips for added structure strength/diagonal weaving)


We also supply ready-made kits for Domes, Tunnels etc. which come with everything you need to start your willow projects including full step-by-step instructions.

Double Row Willow Hedge Kit - 1m x 240cm/8ft Whips 10.25



These kits are designed as a double row of planted Willow and can be used as a dense screen or hedge.

This is a quick, easy and economic way to plant a hedge. It requires no digging, simply lay down the mulch mat, create a hole with a metal bar or similar tool and insert the willow cutting. Here it will take root, producing shoots in the first year and up to 2m of growth in the next.

These hedges should be trimmed back to their starting height annually to keep the growth dense and managable. If left unpruned, each cutting will grow into a full tree - so maintenance is required to keep the hedge in shape.

Each kit comes with:

Our Fence Kits (often called 'Fedges') provide a decorative and long-lasting fencing solution that can be used as boundary fences, space dividers or even wind breaks.

The construction of the fedge is very easy. The willow rods are inserted into the ground and tied together and will set down roots and will begin to grow. The new growth can be woven in around the existing structure creating a dense screen of foliage.

These fences will need annual Spring maintenance for them to keep their structure. They will need cutting back to their original height (or to a taller height if you desire) to allow the fence to bush out and become denser and for it to keep its shape.

For a more decorative finish, our Willow Fedge Kit with Wicker Weaving include short whips for weaving along the tops and bottoms of the fedge for instant impact to your new creation. The Wicker Weaving also makes the fedge more rigid and robust.

Each Kit Contains:

Willow Rods of the correct lengths
Full step-by-step instructions
Flexi-Tie (rubber string)
