Urban Gardening: Fruit Trees -Espaliers, Columnars & Backyard Orchard

Growing fruit tree doesn’t require a massive plot of land. Even if the home you own is in an urban setting, you can still select fruit tree options that will fit in a tight space. This video shows columnars, espaliers and backyard orchard plantings. On my tiny lot I have 2 apples, 3 types of asian pears, 2 peaches and 2 apricots!

    Hope they’ll fruit next year :o)
    On other vids on YT it’s mainly stated that a branch that has a sharp V shape is a weak branch that will probably break off from the main stem, and the wider the branches go, the stronger they’ll get.
    ALso, any branching inward to the tree tend to rub against other branches and will damage the bark. 
    Just curious how you think about these statements :o)
    Cheers from Amsterdam !

    Can I do these trees in containers without killing them over winter? I truly have limited space in zone 7b

    Great video, keep experimenting! Great job with the vase shape when dwarfing your trees.
