- for Wildlife & Bees

Willow is such a wonderful plant, our wildlife and our livestock simply love it!

We keep our bee hives near the willow beds to give the bees an easy source of food, particularly at lean times of the year. We feed willow to our dairy goats and to our ponies where it is a valuable, tasty, supply of roughage. Our rabbits and guinea pigs can‘t get enough of the branches, they love to chew them, fresh or dried, and our chickens free range in the willow beds controlling pests and enjoying the shade! 

If you want to encourage bees and butterflies in your garden with an abundance of catkins, create a unique and attractive habitat for wildlife, or provide a ready supply of tasty fodder for your livestock or pets, willow really is worth planting. In these collections we have chosen the varieties that we think our creatures like the best. Let us know what yours think!

Have a look at this Youtube video, it shows the amazing variety of catkins that our willow create and you can see how the bees and insects love them!
