Product Description

Salix Cinerea (Grey Willow)- Very similar to goat willow with the exception of bearing longer rounded leaves. In the spring, it can be recognised through its large yellow/green catkins which scatter the tree. Grey willow is a relatively small tree, growing up to around 10meters tall in the right conditions. It is also very hardy and able to tolerate frosts, wind, shade and floods. A very versatile tree, which can be found growing in hedgerows, woodlands and scrublands as well as in open areas such as along river banks and streams.

Fruit: Female catkins open when ripe to release lots of white cottony hairs that carry the seeds.

Timber: The timber is soft and light. It can be used to make matches and paper pulp.

Soil Types/Habitat: It will grow in most sites and situations, but grows best in full sun and along water sources. The roots help to prevent soil erosion. Quick growing.
