A fedge is a cross between a fence and a hedge, and can be used as an informal boundary between areas of garden. It could also be called a ‘living screen’. Criss-cross and ornately woven willow fedges are most often seen, and types used include golden willow (Salix alba var. vitellina), S. daphnoides, and
S. purpurea. Willow is easy to grow from one- and two-year-old long cuttings or ‘rods’, also referred to as ‘whips’ or ‘staves’. These cuttings are pliable for bending in all shapes and angles.
