Product Description

An exciting and innovative British grown and British woven living willow product perfect for gardens of all sizes.

The Willow Wand (R) is a 'trunk' made up of 9 living stems of flexible English Willow, plaited together, and fixed with a collar. Woven when they are dormant, they can be planted and treated as a single 'cutting', making them easy to grow for everyone - creating stylish garden plants quickly and with mnimum fuss or expertise.

Once planted, each of the 9 stems will start shooting at the top - you will quickly develop a 'head' of growth on top, which is easily trimmed into topiary shapes. The most popular is a standard lollipop design, where the unique trunk gives a new twist on this classic garden form. Trimming every few months keeps a nice neat head shape.

They even look great in winter with no leaves - their architectural trunks being a colourful feature. Or why not try a 'pleached' style hedge - plant them out in a row the same spacing as they are tall, and trim the heads into a flat hedge, but with the bototm raised up. A really effective, easy and cheap hedge or barrier for gardens.

Being willow, it is totally hardy and weather proof, and very easy. You will need to remove side shoots from the stems 2 or 3 times, before they stop sprouting. Plant about a quarter of the length deep - if in pots, poor qualtiy compost is great! Boggy, heavy clay spots in gardens are perfect.

Note - the heights quoted are the total height of the wand.Over a few years the stems grow into each other to create a unique single trunk effect.

When the willow is first planted you can’t water it enough! Keep well watered until it has formed a good clump of root.

The Willow Wand (R) is a Registered Trade Mark and is Design protected.
