THE WILLOWS

of

West Wales Willows




Willows are a fascinating species!

Different types of willows have been used by mankind
for thousands of years and this plant still shows its benefits
in this day and age as a renewable form of energy,
to create household and garden objects
or to simply please the eye.

We now have close to 300 different willows growing here,
most of these will be available
as cuttings or rods for the 2016/17 season .

To order them, please click on the link above or here.

PLEASE NOTE:  The willow season runs from December through to
February/March.  No orders for willows can be taken at any other time.

Our willows can be used for different purposes -
for rough and fine basket work,
for windbreaks, living & garden structures,
for short rotation coppicing for biomass/ -fuel,
for soil & river bank stabilisation,
for hedging and also simply as ornamental plants
to adorn your garden or to be used in flower arrangements.

If you would like to grow your own willows
(this link will give you a step by step guide)
we can supply you with 10 inch /25cm long cuttings
of varieties suitable for your purpose
between the months of December to March,
as well as with rods for living structures such as domes,
tunnels and the like.

Outside of these times we can supply dried willow as long as stocks last.

If you would like to have a reminder when we start the new willow harvest, send us your details by clicking here.
