Suitable plants for river bank and ground coverage.
We have a river running along one side of our garden we have had some slope erosion and have been advised to plant willows to help stablise the bank. Should we plant only willows, it's a 25 metre stretch and how far apart should then be.
Also we want to plant some ground covering plants on the river bank to stop exposure to the elements and prevent more erosion. It floods a few times a year, perhaps for 2- 3 days at a time.
I was hoping for some advice on the best plants to use for this task.
