Espailer fruit feature

With limited space in our vege patch we decided to have a go at espaliering a couple of fruit trees and so far our effort is paying off with the first new growth emerging, and hopefully the first new fruit not far behind…

We have put in a Green Gage Plum and a Cherry tree, and if all goes well we might even try some other variety next season as there is still room for two more at a pinch…

Whilst neither have produced any fruit this season (they are still busy growing) stay tuned to see what happens next summer!
