Harvesting willow for making Christmas wreaths

Video: Harvesting willow for making Christmas wreaths

Join flower farmer and florist Georgie Newbery of Common Farm Flowers in Somerset as she harvests an order of willow for @petershamnurseries5296 in Richmond, west London. This willow will be used as wreath bases for 100% biodegradable Christmas wreaths. It's great that such a high profile nursery like Petersham is blazing a trail like this, cutting plastic and wire from their Christmas products so that our winter celebrations don't cost the earth.
