We will supply all of the materials, just bring your imagination and let's have some fun. Your $75 fee covers the cost of building a medium sized living willow tree in a 2 gal pot. Larger trees in 5 gal pots are available, additional costs payable on the day of the workshop depending on what you make. 

 

POND RINGS!!!

During any of the living willow workshops, make three special floating willow rings for your pond. These rings work best in larger ponds, ring sizes vary from 8" to 18". If you have fish they will love them as shelter from the sun and you may also see them nibbling at the roots as they grow.  $24 JUST ADD THEM TO YOUR CART WHEN YOU ORDER YOUR LIVING WILLOW TREE WORKSHOP. Please note: pond rings will thrive from May until mid-late summer depending on the conditions. Treat them as a summer annual.
