These kits will provide you with all of the willow whips you need to create our simple, easy to build, living willow structures.

For each living willow kit you will see the sizes that can be achieved.
(You can, if you prefer, plant the whips closer together at the base to make the domes, tunnels and wigwams have
a higher internal height but a narrower 
base width or further apart for a lower height and a wider base width.)

Detailed instructions and biodegradable twine are provided with all living willow structure kits.

As well as these Living Willow Kits, we also sell long whips of Salix Viminalis “Bowles Hybrid” for making living
willow structures and sculptures of your own design – please visit our Other Willow Prices page for full details.

Delivery costs : Because of the lengths of the willow whips, these living willow kits must be sent
by a specialist carrier at a cost of £19.00 per order. Please visit our Ordering & Delivery page for further details.

The photographs below show the different kits at different stages of their
yearly ‘lives’ – some as just planted and some with Spring or Summer growth.

There are photographs of living willow structures throughout our website, but you can see more in our
Living Willow Dome & Bower Gallery, Living Willow Tunnel Gallery and Living Willow Fedge Gallery.

In our standard kits the main structural whips overlap and are woven together.
Until recently, the maximum whip length we could send was 9 ft and this restricted the size of the structures that could be made. Due to customer demand we then offered the ‘adapted’ kits which contain some longer plus some extra whips to allow ‘bigger’ ie taller and/or wider Tunnels and Domes to be made. The main structural whips do not need to overlap because they are held together by the extra linking whips which are tied in to hold the shape of the structure until new growth on the rooted whips can be woven in to take their place – with average growth this should be by early July.
