WILLOW RODS

Can just push willow rods into ground if soft enough, ideally 20cm deep but a minimum of 15cm. Otherwise use poker type implement or similar to make hole in ground first. Pay particular attention to the water requirements of the newly planted willow rods, they may require watering during the first spring and summer to establish if weather is very dry. Ideally keep weeds and grasses down to avoid competition for moisture - planting through a membrane or mulching will help a lot and greatly increase growth rate. Typically no support is required but if stand alone they may initially require a stake to support them in the first season or two if a very exposed site and soil loose. We can offer all sizes in fast growing biomass hybrids also (Add comment at checkout if want hybrid version)
