Bean Sticks
Bean Sticks

These are 9 feet long ash rods, allowing 12 inches to be pushed into the soil, and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. They will last several seasons if stored away during winter.

Willow

We sell bolts (bundles) of willow suitable for hurdle or screen making. These rods are a year’s growth of an old basket willow variety called “Black Maul” (Salix Triandra). They reach 4 to 6 feet tall and each bundle covers 20 square feet of weave.The willow is green and supple for use in early spring, but will become dry as summer progresses and would then require soaking before use to re-establish flexibility.

Unsorted bundles are those straight from the willow bed and may contain weeds and grasses.
Unsorted bundle £28.00 each inc. VAT
Cleaned bundle £35.00 each inc. VAT
Soaked bundle PLUS £5.00 inc. VAT
Flower Stakes

Made to order to the size you require, either from ash, hazel or chestnut. Straight and with a point, 2 inches in diameter and 5 feet long. Used to support delicate or tall plants such as dahlias or sunflowers.

Price £12 inc. VAT for a bundle of ten. The photo shows from left to right; an ash pole, a sawn chestnut tree stake 2″ square, and a cleft chestnut stake.
Living Willow Structures

Simple willow tunnel – We are able to supply materials for simple living willow structures as well as being able to build them ourselves. We recommend you think carefully about the siting of any live willow structure as the willow routes can become invasive in particular situations. One should avoid proximity to buildings, clay lined/natural ponds, ditches, drains etc. and overhead power lines if the rods grow too tall.

We produce several miscellaneous products. Some are available seasonally, such as pea sticks or bean poles, whereas others maybe in stock or may have to be ordered well in advance. The raw materials for our products are mostly harvested during winter, so if you require an unusual product, it is best to order early at the beginning of autumn so we can ensure you are not disappointed.
