Simple & Versatile Framework for Espaliered Fruit Trees, climbing plants and flowers
Espalier, the traditional method used to shape and train trees, is fast becoming popular with New Zealand gardeners and landscapers to create compact and attractive tree features. Plants and flowers are also being espaliered on walls or along fences due to properties having limited outdoor areas in suburbia. It is a practical and trendy way to grow plants and flowers, create privacy from neighbours and give small outdoor spaces character and visual appeal.
Espaliered trees and plants can be grown against a wall (brick or plaster), along a fence or between posts. The espalier method can turn traditionally unsightly trees into features or garden focal points and can be used as an attractive fencing technique in different places within the garden to create division or boundaries while still retaining sunlight and visibility.
