Espaliering Small Fruit Trees

Sometimes finding small trees for small spaces can be very difficult, but one of the recent trends in fruit trees features smaller trees with multiple varieties on one trunk.  We saw William and Judy show us how easy it is to trellis or espalier a small pear tree on a wire between a couple of posts.

By training a tree on a fence, wall or posts, you gain the benefit of the fruit production without the tree taking over your garden.  Another way of growing fresh fruit is to try a columnar apple tree.  These are trees that are a single trunk or shoot that produces apples without branching.
