Living Willow Kits


Below are some photographs of a few of our willow structures,

either just after planting or starting to show new growth, and then showing fuller growth 

They will give you an idea of what can be done on a simple level.

Our kits will help you to make similar structures although the designs may vary very slightly. .

Adapted Living Willow Kits for LARGER Structures


In our standard kits the main structural whips overlap and are woven together. This restricts the size of the structures that can be made. Due to customer demand we now offer the following 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 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.
