Goat Willow plants are a wide spreading large shrub, tree or included in hedging schemes. Goat Willow is native to the whole of the UK. They can adapt to almost any condition they are planted in, boggy or heavy soil, exposure to wind, salt spray or extreme cold. The willow is tough, hardy vigorous bushes and trees and can reach heights of 10-15m.
Like all willow trees, they have catkins which are important food for bees in the early spring. Willows, despite their versatility are under used in gardens perhaps because they are not 'refined' for modern day gardens. Goat willow or sometimes known as Pussy Willow can be used for screening, coppicing, planted in parks, towns, farms. They are great food / nectar source for bees and wildlife.
Willows are the easiest plants to establish for shelterbelt and buttress planting making gardening enjoyable in some of the more extreme climates such as the Shetland, Orkney and Western Isles.
