  1. Winnable Willow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2014

    Decided to choose this Salix because I needed hybrid vigor to speed up my phytoremediation experiment and am happy to say I have around 6 0.5cm internodes on some of the new growth from the meristems in just 2 and a half weeks (they are on top of heated mats inside the glasshouse). Ordered 200 and they have all rooted and shooted nicely, speedy delivery in the dispatch too, what more can I say, happy days

  4. all sprouted 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2013

    50 cuttings bought, 50+ delivered, planted on day or day after delivery. Planting along river bank, in April, in 20cm square of dug bare earth, in part-buried 30 cm tree protectors. Watered every other day. All cuttings had sprouted leaves by 3 weeks after planting. Cuttings have yet to root (a few cuttings were dug up, presumably by wildlife, but survived after replanting). Can't comment on vigour, pest & disease resistance, hardiness.

    First time buyer and very satisfied with the purchase. Good packaging and quick dispatch. All the cuttings are already sending out their beautifull green little leafs.


  6. Wholly satisfied. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2012

    This is the second order we have purchased from Yorkshire Willow. The first consisted of 100 cuttings 12 months ago all of which grew apart from the 40 that succumbed to mole damage. The second order, which was despatched earlier at our request will be planted to replace the "destroyed by moles"variety!
