The end of the willow season

Teepee by Julia Clarke
The willow season comes to an end as the weather warms up.  Bees are buzzing on the Osier catkins and the last bundles of spiling material are being cut and bundled for the Environment Agency.

Willow customers have produced a range of projects this season including Julia Clarke in London with her beautiful teepees and tunnels.

Here are just a few images of some of the structures which are now gracing gardens and schools.

The coppice will be left for much of the year now until November when we will start cutting and grading our willow again for sending out in December.
