WILLOW - DRIED MATERIAL
I grow 3 acres of cultivated willow - some I harvest each year and they grow to be beautiful straight rods varying in length from 3-8'. These are graded by length and sold by the dry pound ($14/pound plus shipping)     All of my willow has the bark still on. I do not have peeled willow for sale at this time.
The number of rods per pound varies with the length of the rods.

For example: One pound of 3-4' rods has around 50 rods.
                      One pound of 4-5' rods has around 40 rods.
I sort to these sizes for most basket work:
                                 2-3' (at least 2' and all less than 3')
                                 3-4'
                                 4-5'
                                 5-6'
                                 6-7'
       (Availability is directly related to harvest success.)
Dried Willow Varieties: 
   German Basket Willow
   Salix purpurea x daphnoides
   Salix purpurea

Dried willow will last indefinitely. Store it in a dry and dark place and it will be there whenever you're ready for it.


 

Willowglen Gardens

For more than 20 years Willowglen's gardens have grown to support a wide variety of hardy perennial flowers, woody shrubs, and trees. These gardens are a living catalog and serve as a reference and inspiration for Lee & Lindsay in their work. They are open for viewing to those taking a class at Willowglen or visitors during the Northeast Iowa Studio Tour each October.
