Located in the middle of the National Forest, Willow Withies has a plantation of more than 76,000 withies. Willow Withies is run by members of the Basket Makers Association, ensuring the quality of the products through supervision and leadership by a willow expert. The company has a total of 13 different varieties of willow, which can be used for everything from artistic sculptures and landscaping to basketry. The willow also comes in a variety of ages, heights, widths and colour. Willow Withies sees the process through from start to finish by harvesting, grading and bundling the willow itself. Willow Withies also has 'do it yourself' kits available, and will provide advice to people starting or planning a willow project or a related topic.
