ideas for espalier?
We have a patch of wall at the back of our house - sunny, sheltered south-facing - ideal for a fruit tree methinks. A metre and a half perhaps width-wise.
I would like to try espalier - and wondered whether anyone had any good recommendations.
We already grow two pear trees so not interested in another, and not overly fussed with apple either although 'red windsor' may be of interest as long as there isn't too much disease? what was putting me off apples was the 'scab' and other diseases that they can suffer, plus i'm not a huge fan of the fruit itself.
I was considering plum. We already have a Victoria in the border which gave us 30 lovely fruits in its first crop this year.
I like the look of Mirabelle - how does it taste? Any other recommended ones for dessert plums?
