Espalier of a Climbing Rose - April 19 & May 3rd
On each of our pruning days, April 16th and May 3rd we will offer a demonstration on the Espalier of a climbing rose called Jeannie LaJoie. Andrew Smith who has taken on this task for the last two years will demonstrate and give direction on how to accomplish this task.
Espalier is the ancient practice of controlling woody plant growth for the production of fruit or bloom, by the practice of tying branches to a frame, frequently in formal patterns, flat against a structure such as a wall, fence or trellis. We have used a prolifically blooming miniature climbing rose called Jeannie LaJoie and tied to a small fence in front of our sales cottage.
