Cuttings, Whips, Setts and Slips... ...are all common terms used for Unrooted Hardwood Cuttings. Planting hardwood cuttings is by far the best and easiest method of establishing willow plants. They will establish and grow better than rooted plants, because there  are no roots that need to recover from being disturbed. Even a 1ft cutting will often  grow 6ft or more in the first growing season when planted in weed free soil.
Willow Cuttings Here at Hedges we strongly recommend planting Unrooted Hardwood Cuttings to get the  best results. Unrooted Willow is easier to plant, quicker to establish and grows faster than Bare Rooted Willow  because there is no shock to the organism when planted... Simply make a hole in the ground with a metal bar, insert the willow cutting and then firm back with your heel. As simple as that! Planting Season The planting season starts early December and carries on until late March or early April  (i.e. when the willow is dormant)

Cutting Sizes Cuttings are available in 1,2,3 and 4ft lengths. 1ft cuttings establish and grow well in weed free conditions and may grow 6ft or more long in the 1st growing season. 2ft cuttings also benefit from weed free conditions. 3ft cuttings prefer weed free conditions but will tolerate some weed competition. 4ft cuttings likewise prefer weed free conditions but are more tolerant of weeds. They are planted 12 to 16 inches deep below most other weed roots and the new shoots get enough light above the weed leaves .As a general rule, shorter cuttings establish and grow well in weed free conditions, whereas longer cuttings have more stored energy and therefore  will establish and grow better in unfavourable conditions.
