Living Willow Structures are a more personal project which will need to suit your individual planting site and requirments. We supply a range of ready-made Kits you can View Here including Domes, Tunnels & Wigwams.
Some general tips would be to work out the height and width you want for the structure so you can make sure you're ordering long enough whips. Remember
that 30cm of the whip will be lost into the ground when planted so order whips longer than the height of structure you want.
Most of our structures use the 2.7m/9ft Willow Whips
for the main frame and 2.4m/8ft Whips
for criss-cross patterns. If building for children we would recommend whips no shorter than 1.8m/6ft
otherwise the kids will soon out grow the willow structure!
Spacing should be 25-50cm for the main frame with extra whips planted in between to give strength to the structure.
