Espalier Workshop at Cygnet.
• Explanation of Espalier technique including Horizontal-T, Fan espalier and Stepover Espaliers.
• Construction of various espalier trellises and fences.
• Planting the fruit tree, pruning and tying onto a wire.
• Different techniques for keeping branches where you want them.
• Pruning technique for future shaping of espaliers.
This course is aimed at those with some experience who want to broaden their knowledge, or those with little experience who are keen to familiarise themselves with basic technique so they can plan their own espalier systems
There are various espaliering supplies and pruning supplies (secateurs, loppers, sharpeners) available on our website. We prefer if you purchase these items from the website before the workshop (can pickup), which will reduce purchases on the day. Most popular items are the rubber plant ties, jute string, bamboo and secateurs.
