Espalier pictures?

Hi all,
I'm wondering if any of you has a great picture of an unusual espalier I could exhibit in a class I have on Tues 10/28? I'm also in the process of checking around with books, mags and images on the web, but haven't found much.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Barbara

Hi I also tried searching for photos on the web and have had very little luck at all. There are many books however that deal with the subject. This website discusses the subject and shows diagrams. I copied the URL directly but it doesn't seem to work out. You can find this site by using google search and typing in espaliers. Unfortunately, this site doesn't show examples.


RE: Espalier pictures?

this is a trifle late for your class, but I just discovered the article today. It's an article in the country living garden magazine titled Think Thin.

Too late for you, but look for photos on line of the 'Tree Circus' in california - don't remember the city. Very odd growths induced, including a telephonbe booth, cathedral windows and more, if I remember correctly.

Try searching "arborsculpture" online - you will find related photos. The book by Richard Reames "How to Grow a Chair" is also described online - sounds interesting!
I would like to find a Canadian supplier for this book.
