Fruit Trees

Fruit trees such as apples, peaches, and pears can be trained flat against walls or fences as fans, espaliers, or single-stemmed cordons. Fruit trees can also be grown along freestanding post-and-wire supports to create divisions within your garden.


Vining fruits such as grapevines and kiwis can be grown on sturdy supports to quickly cover a boundary wall.


Blackberries, redcurrants, whitecurrants, and gooseberries can all be trained against a wall.


Rowan (mountain ash), rambling rose, elder, hazel, and crab apple all make excellent hedging plants. Thorny shrubs such as blackthorn and hawthorn make great stock-proof (and people-proof) edible hedges.
