In this video we’ll show you what we’ve done with willow in our gardens and how to plant willow cuttings. Willow is a powerful and versatile tree, especially the fast growing variety with large flowers producing abundant pollinator food in early Spring. You can create a hedge, a shelterbelt or even a living willow structure by simply sticking cuttings in the ground. Once they have taken root trees will be off to a quick start particularly when mulched. Shelterbelts can provide wind breaking, privacy, pollinator forage, firewood and materials. We like to plant willow arches to divide the garden into sections and to give it a 3 dimensional feel as well as to provide a trellis for climbing roses, berry kiwis and grapes.
Willow cuttings are available on our Online Shop
