The Salix genus consists of about 300 species, ranging from the majestic tree to the humble creeping plant and boasts an astounding variety of shapes and colours.

In 2000 I established Salix, a small centre where I grow and experiment with willow, both as a material for weaving structures and as an ornamental plant. As I work with my willows I find it immensely satisfying to have mastered techniques that have been in use for hundreds of years. I started out making small baskets, and today I use the skills I have acquired to create ornamental structures for gardens.

Edging Hurdles

These can be used to create flower beds, vegetable gardens, planters, or to define existing borders.
