This is also very good. For a broad and in depth coverage of fruit tree growing.

A thread which happened in my absence.

 

I have grown both espalier and fan from scratch. Espalier is fairly easy to manage, fan more tricky but you need a fan for things which won't spur well and are prone to branch dieback. The best espalier I have grown is a pear at our previous house, up the chimney breast, inspired by the ones at East Malling. Two new sets of owners since and both seem to enjoy and maintain it. Should be fairly productive by now I would think.

What about the rabbit run in the back garden?  IIRC
