Planting willow

planting willow Nov 19

A friend gave us about 30 willow stalks earlier this month. There are some gaps in the hedge on the south side of the small holding so we planted them there. The ground close to some of the gaps is quite wet at the moment due to the recent heavy rains but in future, the willow will be useful for soaking up the excess water. The exercise conjured up thoughts of basket making in the future. It could be a useful skill to learn!
