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. Some animals such as goats, sheep and rabbits like to eat the willows leaves.
