ABOUT THIS DAY:
Make a willow plant support from locally grown, freshly harvested willow. 

Using this beautiful native willow, you will learn one basic but very strong weave. You will create a spiralling weave. Learn to bind your plant support by cranking the willow. All the techniques used are helpful for other willow garden projects. These plant supports are great for supporting sweet peas and other climbing plants in your garden.
