Description

Often known as the pussy willow due to the male flowers (catkins) resembling a cat’s paw, flowering from early in the year, it’s popular with lots of wildlife and is loved by the purple emperor butterfly. The catkin laden stems are brilliant for picking and displaying indoors from January on.

Our UK grown hedging plants are supplied as cell-grown saplings ready for immediate planting into their final positions. Cell-grown plants are known to have high establishment success rates with rapid early growth and are uniform and compact in size for quick and easy planting.

As a guide, use 5 plants per metre length. 5 plants will cover a 1m length, 10 plants will cover a 2m length, and 20 plants will cover a 4m length. When planting, set out in a zig-zag style to encourage a thick and bushy hedge.

Care Tips

Medium to large sized hedging that can be easily clipped and maintained to 1.5m. Growth rate 20 - 40cm per year. Prune annually to maintain shape and height – ideally in late winter or early spring.
