Good morning.

@doganjo , if you have any spare, I would have some for my new place, could pick up for @abrewster as I believe we are both in Angus

You can't stop willow growing - plant it any time of the year.

Hi Moira, got plenty for you - want to come and cut it yourself?  You can see your duck children and grandchildren at the same time  :excited:  Bring Brewster too

I've got some (spoke to Andrew earlier) :-)
Mojocafe there's a fair few trees so plenty for you too.
Maybe doganjo has different/more varieties though?
Also got some apple free seedlings that you might like: just crabs but could be grafted over with proper variety at a later date?

Thought you were inverkeilor way, have you moved again?
We'd love to come for a visit, you're also welcome here if you like?- when would you like to cut some branches?
Is it to plant for next year's forage or aforre you planning on dryinf for tree hay for winter?

I don't know what type of willow I have but it produces very long thin branches - zillions of them and i wish I'd never planted the b"£$%y things  :coat:
