Creating the Willow Bed

Volunteers took cuttings from a local grower in the winter of 2016/17 and planted them out in the Spring. We harvested the willow in the winter  of 2018/2019 providing materials for garden structures and basketmaking.  Since the first harvest our  willow has really thrived and is growing vigorously, providing spring blossoms for the bees and a dense habitat for insects and birds.
