About me

I’m a 30 something mum to 3 young children, Jasper, Allegra and Orik. My husband Martin and I decided to make a move to country Victoria to try and live a more sustainable lifestyle, growing and preserving our own fruit and vegetables, raising chickens for both meat and eggs and sourcing other foods as locally and organically as possible.

    Just ducked into Ballan as wife wanted to visit quilting shop. Noticed someone has cut what looks a like a willow tops off be good resource for trellasus, tipi or stakes 🙂 zone 5

    • Willow is actually a really bad choice and for 1 reason only. It resprouts. If you used it for teepees then you’d end up with 3 small willow trees. I wonder if they cut them for basketry and if they did I wonder who it is and of they can teach me. 🙂

        That is a bit of an urban myth re the willow it is a bit harder to sprout than just putting it in the ground 🙂 give it a try and you will see 🙂

        Basketry willow is usually coppiced but if you can get some just look it up mum self taught years ago and just started making stuff 😉
