Espaliers

I am interested in trying to start an espalier peach tree this spring.  My garden space is limited and the backyard is fenced with 6 foot vinyl fencing.  My biggest questions: What are your recommended resources, books? My fence is in NWW corner of yard, meaning SEE exposure for tree? What size dwarf tree do I start with and how early this spring?  Any varieties better than others?

Re: Espaliers


Espaliers are difficult to start and maintain. Some garden centers offer good-sized espalier plants of many kinds of fruit trees. I would suggest planting the easier to grow pillar varieties, These are more manageable, with upright, narrow habits, and do not require regular maintenance.
