Willow Hedge Plants Description

The female catkins are silvery coloured, the more noticeable male catkins are golden and very hairy! The catkins appear before the leaves and look lovely against the bark. The leaves are a soft muted green colour with silvery and hairy undersides, oval shaped, unlike the narrow leaves of the Weeping Willow. The male catkins are full of nectar so good for early bees - and this species supports a total of 266 insect species and is particularly good for moths and caterpillars.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, lare Winter and early Spring. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots.
