near to where i live is a family run business that grew willow for furniture, they have been in business for over 150 years, i was lucky enough to be shown the willow fields..amazing..

WOW, your arch is amazing Dawnsaunt..

Amy, Skips, Daisy - glad you like it.
Still 'a work in progress'. It's John's project really and we dont know the proper way of doing it but seems to be working OK. We have 4 willows each side and keep tying them into each other, I think it working.
Skips, that sounds a wonderful place to visit, how clever to make furniture out of willow.
Our woodland path weaves amongst the trees and goes under this too :-)

That's fabulous Dawn, very artistic. You are both very clever.

Oh well done to you both, I love it Dawn, so clever.

Thanks Karen/Cris. Our path winds through the trees and then suddenly you are in the arch and back out into open ground by the pond, it is beginning to take shape.

Glad you like it Annella. No worries, I miss loads of great pics, like of your garden, too just not enough hours in the day.

Good luck Sandra. I remember you having arches now, looking forward to seeing photos.

do you cut yours back in the winter?

20 Sep, 2011

 

Its still developing Sandra, so no, we've only been tying it in to increase the thickness of the canopy.

i hope to have a day tieing in the new branches soon before the serious winds set in...

20 Sep, 2011

 

Good luck and be careful if you have to use a step ladder, like us.

I'm hopeing to take advantage of my nephew this weekend. he's the tallest so probably wont need a ladder on my willow.

20 Sep, 2011

 

Good plan :)

The arch has turned out so well, you must be pleased it just shows what anyone can do with nature it's brilliant, great .

Hi Folly, its gone a bit wild lately, shoots need tying in, hopefully we'll get around to doing it soon.

Ours are the same Dawn all overgrown...but 5 years on I am more interested in the willow for weaving so I have revamped one of my structures and now cut it down most winters to play with.
