Willow plant climbers workshop

Thu 9th May 2019 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

You can make a 6′ tall climber with a 1′ diameter base for climbing beans or sweet peas. Or you can make a smaller support or cloche for flowers, such as peonies. Learn how to grow , harvest and prepare willow. Weave using  basketry techniques such as a 3 rod wale and pairing. Also learn two types of willow bindings which tie rods together, instead of using string.

Our experienced tutor has been growing and weaving with willow in Peterborough for 20 years, and has experience working with garden designers for the Chelsea Flower Show.
