About Harlequin Willow Tree Kits

Please Note : Living willow orders are only available
for delivery and planting from late November to late February.

Our clear instructions will help you to make your own unique Harlequin Willow Tree.  They can be planted in the ground or in a pot.

As with larger living willow structures, you plant freshly cut willow in winter – when it will root readily – and it will sprout new growth in the spring.

The second photograph above, shows an example of WK-H24 using double planted whips .  . . . 

. . . and in a couple of months you will have a woven tree showing new growth – the third photograph above shows an example of our other kit, WK-H36, using triple planted whips. 

 

 

We provide 2 kits** that can be ordered in our online shop – both can be sent with Hermes at a cost of £4.00 or collected by appointment  :-

Kit WK-H24 : £24.00

This kit will create a Harlequin willow tree using a double whip weave.

We will supply :

24 x 1 m long trimmed whips of a single variety of Salix Purpurea. (Either Salix Purpurea ‘Abbeys’ or Salix Purpurea ‘Lambertiana’ will be supplied)

1 x 5 m soft bendy tie pack for you to cut to usable lengths – to use to secure whips in place during the ‘making’ process.
A quantity of Raffia – for securing the top of the whips once completed.

Full instructions.

** We have only listed kits with 1 m long trimmed whips in our online shop – these can be sent (more economically) with Hermes. 

We can provide longer trimmed whips to make taller harlequin willow trees but they will either need to be collected from the Nursery or sent with the carrier at a much higher delivery cost – if you are already ordering a living willow structure kit then there will only be one delivery cost.

 

Please get in touch if you would like more information about longer whip kits.

These photographs show double and triple planted harlequin willow trees – using various lengths of willow and at various staged of growth. 

Those with more growth were planted mid winter and have started to get established, whilst the tallest one is only just showing new growth having been planted at the end of the planting season – as with larger living willow structure kits, planting is a winter project only.
