Spacings A double row of 2ft cuttings, 25cm apart, planted through a 1m wide mulch mat will establish and grow quickly, usually reaching 6ft or more in the first growing season.   NO DIGGING !! Make a hole in the ground with a metal bar, insert the willow cutting and firm with your heel. As easy as that! Windbreak Hedge Willows are the windbreak plant par excellence. Traditionally grown around orchards and smallholdings, they can reduce windspeeds by as much as 60% even in the winter, providing shelter for stock, plants and people alike. “Super Willow” variety Viminalis will even tolerate very harsh conditions such as high altitude and coastal areas. They will typically grow 6ft or more in the first year and often reach 16ft or more by the third year. Ultimate height will be approx 25 to 30ft, or they can be trimmed to the height required. Spacings A double row of 2ft cuttings at 50cm  between plants and rows through a 1m wide mulch mat  makes a good start to a windbreak. POLLINATE YOUR FRUITS Willow hedges and windbreaks are particularly useful around fruit and veg gardens, not only for their shelter, but also because they flower early in the season attracting pollinating insects which are then only too happy to move on to pollinating the fruit and veg. For this reason they are also good for honey bees. Kits Still at last season's prices.

TO WEED OR NOT TO WEED? Willow, like any other plant, will establish & grow more vigorously with no competition for nutrients, water & light from weeds (including grass). A woven mulch mat will allow water to penetrate to the willow roots and at the same time suppress weed competition. You will always get significantly better results from a small cutting in weed free conditions than a larger cutting in weedy conditions.
