Willow sales at White Croft Cottage

about

I'm not a tutor in basketmaking, but as a willow grower with 16 years' experience I am able to pass on what I have learnt about the process of producing high-quality willow rods for basketry. I grow 10 varieties in the dark soil of Galloway, suitable not only for basketmaking, but for hurdles, sculptures and screening. Contemplating arranging a visit to learn how things are done? Then please phone or email to discuss. There is usually a selection of willow on sale at most times of the year.
