Description

We have found that this willow is the most resistant to the large black aphid that is attacking our willows today, and it is the willow best suited to use as firewood, because it has very little branching, only good strong length of thick wood easily cut up, and as well as that an excellent bee forage because the catkins are among the first Spring pollen available for our bees.

Simply push the sticks/cuttings into the ground where you want to grow them, (half of the cutting in the ground) better in a wettish place.  Then coppice (cut them off right down just above the ground) each year for firewood.
