OUR NEXT LIVING WILLOW SEASON WILL BE
FROM LATE NOVEMBER 2024 to LATE FEBRUARY 2025.

Please email anne@willowsnursery.co.uk if you would like us to
let you know when we are ready to start taking orders.
 

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.

Salix Viminalis “Bowles Hybrid” is the main variety of willow used for these Living Willow Kits, but we may supply an
alternative variety of suitable lengths – 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 with a specialist carrier at a cost of £19.00* per order.

*Please visit our Ordering & Delivery page for further details – higher delivery costs apply to some UK locations.

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.

Please also visit the “Your Willow” page which has previous customer’s photographs 
of their willow growing in ‘normal’ garden and school settings.

In our standard kits the main structural whips overlap and are woven together.
Originally, the maximum whip length we could send was 9 ft (2.7 m) 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.

Unfortunately, the even higher than standard delivery cost for 11 ft (3.3 m) long whips means that we have had to reluctantly decide that this kit is ONLY AVAILABLE FOR COLLECTION or LOCAL DELIVERY.
