Willow Cuttings – Living Structures

Please note willow cuttings are only sold during the cold dormant season between November and April. Willow plants are available during the growing season.

Extra quick growing willow species reaching up to 12 feet / 3.6m in just one year. Can be used for living willow structures, windbreak, biomass, bee food and even firewood.

Ideal for living willow structures like arches, fences, igloos and tunnels. These are great for kids and always an interesting attraction for visitors to your garden. Because it’s alive and growing it will keep virtually forever and doesn’t require painting, just a little trimming once a year. Simply plant the cuttings where you want your structure and weave the top together once they have grown tall enough.

Willows are ornamental yet useful in many ways. Willow cuttings can be planted by simply sticking them into the ground, no need to dig a hole for planting. They do very well in wet conditions, even in waterlogged soil. They root vigorously and grow very quickly. Willows provide food for the bees in early spring year after year. We like planting them along edges of the garden as windbreak. Depending on the species of willow they can reach 10 feet / 3 meters in the first year. The cuttings are 20cm long and about pencil thickness. Animals such as goats, sheep and rabbits like to eat the willows leaves.
