If you’re not sure, it maybe a fedge, rather like the one growing at RHS Rosemoor. It was born around four years ago, when around fifteen varieties and mixed colours were planted. The willow is harvested each year and the stems have been used to create the fedge.
The fedge will be clipped as it grows, to maintain the geometric design.
The colours are planted in groups.
See how the fedge blends with the background, creating strong vertical lines?
I was at Rosemoor for the sculpture in the garden, my first visit for several years. Each winter they have the sculpture exhibition, it blends beautifully with naked trees, the curves of the valley, hard landscaping and excellent design like the fedge.
And of course there is the hobbit house!

Now that took some work! I’ve never seen anything like this. Great set of images, Gilly.
I love willow structures……a garden near us does them and I just love how they change through the seasons.
A great idea. I’ve seeen a few too, but it would be great to have more of them.
Very impressive, they’ve done something similar in one of the gardens in Oxford, but they’ve used roses and arches instead of uprights. 🙂
I like the fedge, what a great idea. I don’t remember the pine forest at Rosemoor though – is that an extension to the garden? It is about a decade since we visited though… time to return.
What a pleasing idea, Gilly! It looks great 🙂
It’s wonderful the way they created this wedge with natural material. It looks very artistic. A great creative venture for a garden. Beautiful … Issy 😎
Wow Gilly that is so impressive .. Wonderful colours too 😃
Superb photos Gilly – all those lines and fences. And an introduction to a new word.
This is impressive. Whoever did this weaving is patient.
I love what they are doing here to make nature into something so beautiful. I think a ‘fedge’ is quite a fetching idea!
