Garden design, plants and willow weaving are my passion. Brought up in a family of artists, I trained in horticulture and my enthusiasm for plants and design eventually nudged me up against the world of willow weavers.
Willow is the perfect renewable material, it grows happily throughout the UK and there are many simple weaves which are easy to master. Creating willow structures in your garden is a great outlet for your creativity and if you have your own source of willow you need not feel restrained! I love growing willow as it is beneficial to much insect life and its winter stems add valuable colour to the garden through the winter months.
I have just completed some willow screens which I feel add a gentle dynamism to borders, they can be moved around to sit in gaps and used as a backdrop to existing plants.
