This is a charming Living Willow Tunnel that I completed for Brookfields Childrens Nursury Powys to add to their play area. It was built at the end of March 2010, these photos were taken exactly 4 weeks after planting at the end of April 2010. You can see the new growth already enhancing the structure.
