OK, everyone would like a nice hide in their garden so they can sit back and sort the pigeons, squirrels and rabbits out. The problem has always been that the other half wonít let you keep a crappy camo hide in the garden. Well, here is the solution to all your problems. This is the one I look after and use!

The other half will love it because itís a living arbour and you donít mention the hide bit. She will just think you are taking an interest in the garden ( not ) and what a loving generous person you are!

Stevo,
I will have to work that one out....err
just hang on to your money a little while longer or just start planting lots of willow around and tell the farmer you are doing your eco friendly thing!

Cheers

If you want a fast growing willow screen for next years shoots, no pun intended !
Cut 12" long pieces of willow about as thick as your finger.Cut one end on an angle and force them into the ground so only an inch protrudes.
Willow has vestigual roots under the bark.
They will grow at about 3-4 feet per year and give you a screen.This is as long as sheep or cattle don't eat them.
