This great snap is of our new willow form, sitting proudly in the South Essex wildlife garden.

Created for us by the wonderful artist Laura Ellen Bacon, it looks good, smells good and is a great place for insects.

A mixture of living and non-living willow, the form will continue to grow, bud and knot together.

Woven at the top of our garden, standing over 6ft tall, it’s a great way of welcoming people into the garden.

If you pop down to the visitor centre this weekend make sure to get outside and have a look.
