Thanks doganjo.     Appreciate it.  PM sent.
Did I send you some?

Yes, thank you.   Planted some in our boggy areas, (not looking great),  some in the better spots, (surviving ok),  and about 10 in the polytunnel for  a season. These did well - currently about 2-3ft tall, and have just been transplanted outside.

Dave have you tried making a series of 15 - 18  inch high mounds a couple of feet across and planting a willow cutting in each of them to a depth of six inches or so in the more boggy areas ?

Got plenty more if you want them Dave.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Cloddopper - Not tried that. May give it a go in future.

Doganjo - Thanks, but have done with planting for now.    :thumbsup:
