"Your Willow" !

Some of our customer’s have very kindly written or e-mailed to let us know how much they enjoyed building their living willow structures and then using them.

Some have even sent photographs of their willow structures and have kindly given their permission for us to show them. 

We thought it might be helpful for you to see willow growing in ‘normal’ garden settings.

Nicola of Hitchin says :

“Thanks for the willow den - we love it. Lots of fun to make and we've added dogwood clippings round the bottom to keep the bark chippings in. Can't wait to see the new growth in the spring.”

This is Liz’s Living Willow Arbour in mid construction.

We delivered the willow whips to her in the UK and she took them to her home in France.

These fantastic mature willow structures were initially created by Peter and Zetta in 2004
from willow collected from our nursery.  They kindly recently got back in touch to say how happy
they are with their willow and to send these current photographs (April 2011).

This photograph shows
Gareth & Lara’s
Standard Dome Kit
newly planted in Rugby.

This photograph shows
how Cassie Liversidge,
Paul the Gardener and
the children at Chisenhale Primary School in London have put two of our
‘Adapted’ Dome Kits plus some extra whips to an imaginative use in the
limited planting space
of their playground.

Caryl near Rushden Northants planted
one of our Dome kits in March (top left).
The photo on the left shows the good growth
in May and the photo above is taken in August,with some of the growing season
still to go, and new growth woven in.

Above is a photograph of a Half Bower made
using one of our kits by John in Scarborough.

Below is his view from it !!!!

Chris and Frankie on the Isle of Wight used some of our
9 ft long whips to create a living willow structure to their own design,
as shown in the photograph below, just after planting.
 

The following photograph shows their structure 4 months
after planting, with it’s new growth - this will become more dense
during this growing season and in subsequent years .......

We hope that these photographs have been of interest to you
- and if you buy any of our willow whips or kits and would
like to share what you have built, we would be very
pleased to see your photographs.

... And five years later ...
