Hi, i have been given a large sackful of willow whips, and am getting excited about living fences, structures, dens etc.
i do not know the variety and i have been told its not easy to identify as there are so many.
im starting to worry about roots though, and information is not clear. Websites say nowhere near buildings or drains. Others say modern closed drains are fine, and for buildings you can go min distance - 1.5 x final height. So if you cut or bend at 6ft say...thats actually pretty close to a building isnt it?
a bit confused. Any willow fans out there to help me?
