Q83 Super Hybrid Willow
Salix Viminalis x Triandra Hedging
An extremely fast growing willow hybrid, very popular for biomass firewood.
These plants are delivered as setts - unrooted cuttings.
Along with hybrid poplar, these are one of the fastest plants you can grow to block out something you don't want to look at!
You can browse our normal willow trees here, view our selection of willow hedging or see our full range of hedging plants.
Planting Willow Setts:
They establish rapidly in any soft earth, free of weeds.
Soak them in water overnight, then plant them to about half their depth, coloured end pointing upwards.
Cut back half the new growth in the winter after planting to make them bush out.
For biomass fuel plantations, space the rods 50cms apart with 1 metre between each row.
Harvest every 3 years.
To 14 metres.
