So my Apple tree has come but now i am really confused as it is not the shape i was expecting g it is supposed to be trained for espalier but it isn't what i expected can any one help with #advice #espalier
This looks more like a 'stepover' with just one layer of branches. An esapalier would have a central leader that you would train horizontal branches out from either side of the leader. Definitely needs following up with the supplier.
It does yes @ukjohnny your very clever i have just been in contact with the supplier and they said the same that is the first set of horizontal s and the knew spurs will produce the next upright and then that will produce the next horizontal it makes sense now and i know who to come to if i get stuck along the way 😉 😀
