Ian was a lover of nature, crafts & basket weaving. He started growing a variety of willow on his property in Middle River, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, back in 2013, mainly to use for his own basket making.
Sadly Ian passed away 10th April 2022, from esophegus cancer after a 2 year battle.
His wife, Lisa, decided to try to continue his hard work by harvesting the beautiful willow he grew & selling the dry rods to fellow basket makers.
Lisa is a complete novice! (She is a full time Antiques Dealer!) So cannot give any advice at this time.
Lisa found a list of names of the willow he grew:
Americana, Koriyanagi, Hutchinsons Yellow, Flame, Black Maul, Acutifolia and Purpurea but has not fully matched the rows to the willow names - yet!
The 2022 harvest is cut & graded & will be for sale later in the year.
Lisa might even attempt to make some baskets & dragonflies, time permitting!
