In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.

Espalier Fruit Trees

Espalier is the french term (pronounced: es-puh-li-ye) for an ornamental shrub or fruit tree that has been trained or pruned to grow flat. This can be grown against a wall or fence and is great way to have a variety of fruit in a small amount of space compared to the standard tree.

I’ve been dreaming of doing this all around my future garden!! Not only does this save space so you can plant up to four times more various types of fruit trees in the same amount of space, the aesthetics of the different designs can be quite intricate and beautiful.
