Espalier Fruit Trees

Espalier fruit trees are trained to grow against a wall, making better use of limited space while still being just as productive. Many types of fruit trees can be espaliered, including Apples, Pears, Plums & Cherries.

To espalier your fruit tree, cut back the main stem in Spring to about 40cm, leaving three strong buds. In summer, place two canes at a 45 degree angle and tie two of the branches to form the 'arms'. In the second spring reduce the 'arms' by two-thirds to an upward-facing bud.

All of the below varieties are perfect for espalier training.
