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.
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)
