Willow harvest

This blog is going to be all things garden and craft related. So, pretty much about everyday life here at Froghollow.

Spring had been very late here this year, Its not long since I've harvested this years crop of willows, usually this gets done in the winter, but it was so wet this year I've been late getting around to it.
The willows I harvest get used in the garden as plant supports and some I use to make baskets.
I grow a range of colours, and some very vigorous continentals, these are great as bean poles.

The willows are starting to sprout new shoots now already, once they get going they grow tremendously fast, well over 10 feet in a season.
