Garden Structures

Natural structures for your garden and allotment made from organically grown willows.

We weave a variety of shapes and sizes of plant supports and cloches for your garden or allotment. If you have a particular design in mind do contact us to discuss your idea and we will do our best to make this for you. Tree planters are a great way to hide ugly plant pots. Bear in mind that willow disintegrates over time when kept outside, especially through wet winters. We advise you to treat your structures annually with a wood preserve and bring them indoors throughout the winter.

plaited tree

Living willow plaited trees can grow in large pots but thrive in the ground. Eventually the willow pressure grafts together and grows into a solid tree which retains the diamond shaped gaps. New growth can be removed from the trunk of the tree allowing the leaves to grow from the top of the tree.

The cost for each tree is £35 without postage . We have three varieties, Green dicks (yellow/lime green), Dark dicks (rose red), Le bleu ( deep purple)
