Greenspire Linden Horizontal Cordon Espalier - Spring 2022
Earlier this week, I showed off the new haircut that I gave to the pair of crabapple trees in our sideyard and talked about my plan for shaping them into a Palmette Verrier form along the side of our house. I thought it would be wise to document my other (or...as the kids say: OG) espalier: the pair of Greenspire Linden trees that are shaped into a four-tiered horizontal cordon.
The last time that I showed these trees was in early April when they had NO leaves on them. I mentioned last week that they had broken bud (very pretty buds, btw) and were leaf'ing out.
What do they look like this week? Really lovely set of espalier - with four tiers. Well...almost four. See below:
I'm thinking those will get done this growing season.
