(Weed suppressant sheeting) onto  ground and peg it down neatly especially at the edges. Lay the willow rods  out on the ground. Generally, the spacings between uprights for a 12’ tunnel would normally be about 1’ apart, so 13 uprights would be required for each side of the tunnel.  You can  now start to plant the uprights. For best results, willow stems pushed into the ground to  between 4” & 6” and left to stand upright. If needed, twist the  willow round so it is as  upright as possible and bending towards the upright on the other side
