Willow for Artists, Designers & Florists

We continue to be amazed at the projects that artists and designers undertake with our willow. Scroll to the bottom of this page and have a look at some of their creations, visit their web sites, and see more of their work. Look at our Facebook page for lots of other photographs and great ideas  https://www.facebook.com/worldofwillow

For florists, artists and designers we sell cuttings to grow your own willow from our collection, we sell fresh stems in season from our curly and our coloured varieties for your projects, and we sell sprays of catkin stems when they are in bloom between December and March.

To browse our collections and buy online  "Cuttings to grow" or "Willow for weaving" from the list on the left.  If you want something specific then contact us to discuss your requirements on contact@worldofwillow.co.uk 

Stems of catkins from our collection arrive at different times between December and March, if you would like to include them in your arrangements drop us an email and we will tell you what is available 

If you have something you want to create willow might be a great medium to work it is natural, sustainable and comes in beautiful colours, textures and shapes. We like bespoke projects and we love a challenge! From a wedding decoration, to an interior design installation or Cathedral centrepiece, willow might be the answer! Have a look at these links below.

RHS Chelsea 2017

Yet again willow plays an important role at Chelsea this year. Hurdles in the Broadland Boatbuilder garden, decorative balls from Alladio Sims, a beautiful chair being woven in the Linley Artisan Garden and the Peacocks surveying the scene at Garden Blanc. For me though the real highlight was Salix Exigua, the Coyote willow, given pride of place in the Gold Medal winning Bank of Canada Garden designed by Charlotte Harris. We hope to start growing that one next year!
