Espaliered Trees

8 May

Like many of us, this city living is tight. I have been really enjoying growing food in our garden and it’s no acreage. Our garden designer tipped us off to espaliered apple trees and they really have been blowing my mind! They grow up against a wall or fence and literally take up NO space. In the few years we have had them they have given us TONS of apples off of two very small trees, no taller than 4 ft. Here are ours growing in our garden.


You also can grow them like this within the garden and make an awesome privacy screen or living room/space divider. I can’t say enough good things…espaliered trees…isn’t nature grand?
