Espalier is a beautiful and functional way to grow fruit trees. In our latest video, Tricia talks about the techniques needed to prune and train an espalier.

Thanks for the great espalier video and gallery!  I am wondering about invasive roots.  I have a perfect, south-facing wall on my garage.  Would love to do apple or fig as recommended, but am concerned about the cement foundation of the garage, and the driveway on the other side of the planting bed.  Could also do peach or pomegranate if those root systems are less invasive.  Thanks!

The roots won’t be a problem. You can often see espalier trees in Europe that are hundreds of years old and so far have not compromised the walls or castles they are planted against. Plant without fear!
