    Poke them in the ground about 10-12 ins deep and they will root easily. The stems make good plant supports but need to be dried for about year or they will root. They won’t compost easily or burn and it is the only thing I take to the tip!

    That's very kind of you NG but I have already ordered some. I'll let you know how I get on and may come begging at a later date if they don't work out.

    I grew some and got 100% success as well. One bit of advice - make sure you plant them the right way up. I know someone who didn't.

    I got about 20 pencil thick, 12" long sized willow cuttings 2 years past. 100% result.

    Put down weed membrane. Then big screwdriver straight into the soil. Popped in the stick (Right way up) and a gentle heel in.
