‘Dead’ Willow Bundles of mixed lengths.

‘Dead’ Willow’ ** What we mean by ‘dead’ is that this willow is intended to be used for ‘rough’ weaving (such as border edging or plant supports) rather than as living willow for rooting.  However, if you order these bundles for delivery in winter they will have been freshly cut so, if you wish, you can use them to create living willow sculptures or very small structures – please let us know if you plan to plant them so that we can send you the freshest cut material. Some customers also like to use this willow to weave into living willow structures to provide extra detail. However, please note that, as it is not pushed into the ground to root, after a few years it will decay and fall away.
** Please note that this willow will dry out and, if it is to be used for weaving from around late April onwards, it will need soaking before it is pliable again.  Full instructions will be provided. We are can supply bundles of either mixed 3 to 5 foot lengths or mixed 4 to 6 foot lengths.

Bundles of mixed 3 to 5 ft lengths of ‘Dead’ Willow :  (Salix Viminalis “Bowles Hybrid”) As mentioned above – this willow is suitable for ‘rough’ weaving, say, around living structures, border edging etc. (it’s not a variety considered to be basket weaving quality) or, as they are fresh cut, for small living willow sculptures etc Please let us know if you plan to plant them so that we can send you the freshest cut material. Bundles are approximately 8 inches in diameter at the base and  contain approximately 200 whips. Ref WK 106A   £30.00
