Living Structures

Little is more satisfying than making your own living willow structure and watching it burst into new growth each spring. You may want to create a living hedge to provide a decorative alternative to a fence, to design a tunnel or arch leading to another part of your garden, or perhaps create an igloo, wigwam or chair for the children to play with.

Listed here are some cuttings that you can buy to grow your own willow suitable for making living willow structures. Either choose by individual variety from our collection, or choose our selection containing 5 different varieties. These cuttings planted now will give you some useable rods in the autumn, and many more next autumn when they have established. Alternatively, if you don't want to wait until next year for it to grow tall enough to build, why not have a look at our Living Willow Kits. They contain everything that you need to make a structure including willow, mulch matting, pegs, a suggested design and step by step instructions.
