Kits Prices

Shipping : Late November
to early March.

These kits will provide you with all of the willow whips
you need to create our simple, easy to build, living willow structures.

For each living willow kit you will see the sizes that can be achieved.
(You can, if you prefer, plant the whips closer together at the base to make
the domes, tunnels and wigwams have a higher internal height but a narrower
base width or further apart for a lower height and a wider base width.)


Detailed instructions and twine are provided with all living willow structure kits.

 

Living Willow Kits are delivered late November to February
(Click here for carriage charges)

LARGER LIVING WILLOW KITS
for Domes/Arbours/Playhouses and Tunnels

The longest whips we use in our standard kits (above) are 9 ft long
as this was, originally, the longest size we could send with the carrier.

To allow larger (wider/higher) living willow structures to be created
we devised our ‘Adapted’ Kits - see directly below - which are still available.

However, we can now send up to 11 ft long whips by carrier so we can also offer ‘Large’ Dome and
Tunnel Kits using 11 ft whips  for the main structural  element to create even bigger structures.

Please note : Due to the growth rate of this variety of willow, we will have limited availability
of these 11 ft long whips.  They will only be available as part of these kits and cannot be ordered
in the online shop.  Please ring 01536 791371 or email
anne@willowsnursery.co.uk to order. 
See full details below the ‘Adapted’ Kits’ details.

 

‘ADAPTED’ Living Willow Kits

In our standard kits the main structural whips overlap and are woven together. As mentioned above, the maximum whip lengths we could send was 9 ft and this restricted the size of the structures that could be made.   Due to customer demand we then offered the following ‘adapted’ kits which contain some longer plus some extra whips to allow ‘bigger’ ie taller and/or wider Tunnels and Domes to be made. The main structural whips do not need to overlap because they are held together by the extra linking whips which
are tied in to hold the shape of the structure until new growth on the rooted whips can be woven in to
take their place - with average growth this should be by early July.  These kits are still available : -

‘ADAPTED’ DOME/CHILDREN’S PLAYHOUSE/BOWER  eg for over a seat
(up to a maximum 6 feet 6 inch inside height & 7 feet base diameter)

 Ref WK107    68.00

‘ADAPTED’ TUNNEL -   6 Feet long :
(up to a maximum internal height 6 feet 6 inch & width of tunnel at base  6 ft)
The kit contains : 10 x 9 ft willow whips and 21 x 8 ft willow whips .

Carriage Charges

All of these kits and bundles have to be sent by a specialist carrier
because of their length so we must ADD 19.00 PER ORDER to cover
this cost to UK mainland (excluding parts of the Scottish Highlands)

We can arrange delivery to the Scottish Highlands and Islands,
Northern Ireland etc too but the carriage charge will be higher, also,
slightly higher charges now apply to the Isle of Wight.

Please telephone for carriage charges if you require delivery to any of these areas.

 

PLEASE NOTE - you can come and collect your order by appointment!
