A bundle of different coloured willow sticks ready to strike straight into the ground and grow as new trees. otherwise fondly known as our withies!
Common Farm Flowers is known for the beautiful coloured willow we use in our willow wreaths and hearts for Christmas and Valentine’s. The perfect time to strike willow direct into a damp corner of your garden is between the end of November and the end of February.
Willow is a fantastic source of food and shelter for wildlife. If you pollard your willow (cut the tops off when you cut whips off your trees to make into willow wreaths or use in floristry,) then you’ll find they grow a fat crown out of which new whips grow. In those crowns you’ll find wrens and goldfinches and blue tits darting about to feed on overwintering aphids while as the pussy willow opens on the stems you’ll hear massed bees feeding on the pollen on sunny days. We call our willow trees the humming trees because the bees love them so.
These make a lovely alternative Christmas, Valentine's, Mothering Sunday or birthday present!
The willow is available by click and collect from Common Farm Flowers for £35 or for delivery nationwide for £50. Collection and deliveries available on Thursdays and Fridays only.
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
