Description

"Go vertical" is the cry when garden space is limited. Gardening in two dimensions is what espalier is about and this class will cover the different types and how to get them started and then continue to train them into the desired shape. Topics covered are suitable fruit trees, pruning and training techniques.

Suitable for all gardeners

Excellent workshop with lots of additional info on soil ecosystem and plant physiology. A big plus was the fact that we could see first hand espaliers at the nursery
