A cricket bat is a specialised piece of equipment used by batsmen in the sport of cricket to hit the ball, typically consisting of a cane handle attached to a flat-fronted willow -wood blade. It may also be used by a batter who is making their ground to avoid a run out, if they hold the bat and touch the ground with it.
Willow is established from cuttings that are inserted into the ground in winter and spring. The ideal cutting is around 10mm thick and 300mm long and is pushed to half its length into the ground. It is best to plant through a ground cover material as this helps to retain moisture and reduce competition from weeds.

When planted at a close spacing, the Bigfoot Hybrid Willow fills in fast and has the desired density, creating fast growing privacy screening. When spacing farther apart, these willow hybrids will spread out more and work great as a fast growing shade tree.
