"How to make a living willow hedge" ~  Almost all willows take root very readily from cuttings. Young, thin willow cuttings are known as withies, longer willow rods are known as whips. Willows have high levels of auxins, hormones that promote rooting success. The hormone is so prevalent that "willow water" brewed from willow stems, will encourage the rooting of many other plant cuttings as well.

I want living willow hedges, fences, and arches. Picture of new growth on the willow arbour at Whichford Pottery, Warwickshire.

Could it be this simple? hmmmm  The living willow fence- In short, you take long and straight willow stems and plant then in a line in the spring (just stick them in the ground), weaving them into a desired form and tie joints together for stability for the first few years for stability (elastic is good for this, but will need to be removed eventually).
