I learnt a lot more about plants, pests, etc. than just about the art of espalier. The class was so informative, and the instructor spoke from experience, and was very practical with her suggestions. Quite enjoyable, and to watch her pruning was worth being there in itself.

The class allowed me to review my choice to espalier an apricot tree I was offered intensive examples of pruning but also a good appreciation of the overall garden context

A lot about espalier. I was left with the feeling that it isn't very hard to do and am excited to give it a go.
