Fan Trained & Espalier Fruit Trees

There are few more ornamental ways of covering a good wall or fence than with a fan or espalier fruit tree.The Espalier option – where the growth is restricted to two or three orderly ‘tiers’ – is used forApples and Pears only.

Fan Trained Cherry Trees

The fan trained system – a ‘fan’ shaped tree with multiple branches from near the base,can be utilized for apples, pears, plums, gages, cherries and damsons, as well as peaches, nectarines and apricots.

These trees generally need a spacing of not less than 8′, and a usable height of 6′ or more. It does not matterif it is a fence or a wall as long as it is structurally sound and the soil isn’t too dry.

We supply our trees as suitable for training on into fans or espaliers. We select good young trees with lowerlaterals with which to work which makes it easy to create your own espalier or fan trained trees. It is usuallybetter to grow them in situ where the tree can grow in accordance with the available space and terrain,rather than a ready trained tree that is shoe-horned in after it has already grown. Such ready trainedtrees are also around twice the price of those we sell and tend to travel badly, which is why we donot offer the trees ready-trained.

Peaches, Nectarines and Apricots favour a South facing wall. All the others do well on South, West or East.A North wall can be utilized with a Morello cherry or cooking apples.
