Since watching the Dave Wilson Nursery videos on building a Backyard Orchard I have been really digging intensively pruned and trained trees. After watching the videos we were coming up with idea after idea for Espalier trees one of which was doing one of the Key Limes we purchased discounted at Lowes for 10 dollars. (It had been burnt by a freeze). We chose up against our workshop facing West so it gets beat to death with heat and sun.
I recently purchased a Gripple “crimping / tensioning” tool for high tensile wire and we’ll be able to do this better once that comes in. Rather than tying off the high tensile wire we’ll be able to actually set it properly. I will probably come back and redo this bottom wire when I complete the rest. We’ll probably do another 2, maybe 3 rows going up.
