The size of your sphere will start at approximately 2-3ft, but can grow larger as you weave in the growth each year. Please note, we recommend these trees be planted in the ground. $75

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.
