"How to make a living willow hedge" ~  Almost all willows take root very readily from cuttings. Young, thin willow cuttings are known as withies, longer willow rods are known as whips. Willows have high levels of auxins, hormones that promote rooting success. The hormone is so prevalent that "willow water" brewed from willow stems, will encourage the rooting of many other plant cuttings as well.

Willow hurdles are used for weaving around the edges of areas in the garden, particularly raised beds. Use live willow and leave it for a few weeks to die (it will still be flexible to use) before weaving it. You will also need uprights - hazel is a good material to use .
