Making Plant Supports In Willow with Jenny Crisp

Jenny ran a fabulous course for us one summer, lovely weather and lots of amazing creations went home in the back of peoples cars, and strapped to roof racks! I visited Jenny’s workshop and Willow beds many years ago and used to commission her to make things and also sell some of her baskets in my old shop in Nettlebed. Over 10 years ago I bought some willow sets from her and what started as a 20 metre run of willow has now turned into over 100metres of Willow tunnel, Willow walls, hedges and now a magnificent Dome in the …wait for the name…”Willow Meadow”. Jenny has produced a beautiful and useful book on Willow and has appeared on TV as well as creating amazing pieces with her daughter Izzy for the Chelsea Flower Show (and beyond) She usually visits Church Farm at least once a year to help me harvest or replant- its one of my favourite days of the year- despite the fact its usually raining!
