Weed
Control
Kits
Willows are very tough & adaptable but the single most important factor for good establishment and rapid growth of your willow copse is good weed control – including grass – in the first growing season.
If you prefer not to use herbicide and/or do not have your own weed mat in stock then we strongly recommend our weed control kit. Hand weeding is not recommended.
Cuttings are planted through a 50cm wide strip of woven polypropylene which suppresses weed growth but allows water to penetrate to the roots. Weed mats will also preserve soil moisture in dry periods.
Kit Includes;
* 100M x 50cm wide woven polypropylene weed mat
* 200 x ground cover pegs to firmly anchor the mat
  ( Enough for 1 Copse Kit )
