Espaliers

My experiments with espaliered forms continues with success (mostly!)

The pear on the bread oven wall is looking good:_blg3035I am not so  happy with the two apples on the pigsty wall. It was a mistake to buy two varieties. Not only do they have very different leaves, but they also have grown at vastly different rates:_blg3034  The right hand one has not produced a viable main shoot 😦  I’ll leave it to next spring, hoping something appears before I make a decision about whether to replace it or not._blg3033I am also trying a pear trained to wires across posts to try to block off the ugliness of the washing line. This pear has been in a pot for two years and is not looking very happy. Hopefully it will be ok here…._blg2969
