"My Belle de Boskoop apple tree arrived safe and well and I am delighted with it. It was very well protected for its journey and is now planted in the ground."

Salix viminalis is fast growing and an upright large shrub or small tree producing dense green catkins in late winter and early spring. A plant for tough wet conditions
Salix aurita is an uncommon willow of heaths and moorland, particularly near streams. Makes a small shrub
Salix Caprea is a small, upright, erect branching, deciduous large shrub or small tree with a fast growth rate producing showy familiar pussy willow catkins. Easy to grow in most situations.
Salix alba Vitellina is a must for those seeking winter colour producing bright yellow to orange winter shoots. Golden Willow is easy to grow in any situation, particularly in moist conditions.
Salix cinerea is a tall shrub or small tree. Catkins appear in advance of the leaves in March and April. Similar to Salix caprea. Use with other natives in hedgerows.
Salix purpurea is a shrub or tree to about 5 m. tall, frequent beside lakes and rivers or other wet situations.
I much prefer its other name of rosmarinifolia which perfectly describes its beautiful grey green 'rosemary' like foliage. Can be trimmed to form a lovely semi formal hedge
Violet willow, as its name suggests, has purple young shoots with silky grey catkins in late winter and early spring. Salix daphnoides is a must for the wet/water-planting scheme.
