What is Espalier Prunning?

Espalier pruning is a great way to get high yields in small spaces while providing a real piece of living sculpture in your garden. An espalier fruit tree is pruned and trained flat, usually against a wall or fence. This style does take a bit more work and maintenance because you are fighting against the trees natural growth pattern. In a future blog posts we will show you how to start and maintain an espalier fruit tree like the one in the image below.
