Spectacular! This must take such discipline and care to create!

All are gorgeous. I would love to train an espalier against m garage, now deciding on a style will be made even more difficult after your post.

Love the pictures. Especially the one by JylCat where the trees branches were so regular and symmetric.

A pity that not many, or any people in my country practice this pragmatic way to garden, in terms of aesthetics and the final product.

Jim/ArtofGardening said...

Wow! I'd never seen most of these. They make my espaliers look rather meager. Thanks for posting them. They're inspiring.

I love the trees against the buildings. It must take a lot of time to train them to grow like that.

Love the blog, you def have a new follower.

I was wondering if you knew what kind of plants are good for heavily shaded gardens? we have a tiny tiny city garden, but it is surrounded by big oak trees which i suspect are sucking the life out of everything, couple that with it not getting an ounce of sun and me being a complete novice, i've no idea what to plant in there, everything from last year died.

thanks for your help!!

An inspiring collection Ewa! I like the one photgraphed by Philip Bouchard the most!

Roberto Jose Celdran said...

The fruit trees are all gorgeous! I suppose this is like creating a bonsai only you are not cutting down any new growth but training them on a wire/twine or something. I suggest you teach us how to do this. :)

Edwin Meijer said...

Oh wow! I have never seen fruit trees shaped like that. I don't know if I would ever attempt to do this because I prefer my trees to be more wild and unkempt, but I really appreciate the aesthetic of this.

Amazing pictures! I really love them all. This must have taken you such effort and discipline to create and make them grow like that. How I wish I had one of them in my own garden! Thanks for sharing.

What beautiful trees, I especially like the 4th and 5th photos. I imagine growing trees like this is no easy feat and would involve a lot of monitoring or is it simply a case of guiding them with wires?
