We grow willows in one of
the most beautiful parts of Britain - the
of Pembrokeshire, offering online supplies of willow cuttings and rods
for short rotation coppicing as fuel for your woodburner, bee fodder,
living structures like outdoor wicker furniture, domes and tunnels for
individuals or community projects - also easy to be built in your
school or kindergarten.
We also manufacture willow pet toys for rabbits and rodents.
The climate here is ideal for
willow plants - enough moisture (simply called "rain"by some people)
all year round, intermingled with periods of glorious sunshine and blue
sky, giving the willows what they need to grow into lovely strong rods.
Willow trees ("withies") have for
a long time been part of the local flora, as is mirrored in local place
names like "Withybush".
Besides being used for baskets of different types, lobster pots were
the main product manufactured from withies in this area.

We are here to pick up the thread again and once more produce willows
in Pembrokeshire, carrying on with the tradition.
