Espalier Pears

Pear trees are the speciality of the Holkham Walled Garden. This year the gardeners have been carefully pruning the espalier trees that stand sentry inside the main gate. They are looking splendid now as the leaves turn. 

For information about growing espalier pear trees the Royal Horticultural Society advice  is helpful on their website. The 'jump to' pages give detailed advice on buying, pruning and care.
