GROW YOUR OWN Foodscape and organic garden in your frontyard.
We show how to build a trellis to grow espalier fruit trees. We show how to dig post holes and set posts, and then two different ways to hang wires. The first uses eye hooks, steel wire, and turnbuckles. And the second uses a kit designed for espalier wires in wooden posts.
