Description

The Art of Espalier

Thursday, November 30, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Instructor: Robert Bowden

Are you interested in creating an interesting pruned plant as a focal point in your garden or gaining higher yields from your fruit trees? There is an easy pruning technique called espalier (es-PAL-yay) that can accomplish just that! Plants trained as espaliers can be used as decorative accents in the landscape where they function as living sculptures – but with significantly less trouble than growing topiary. Plants trained in this manner are especially effective against empty walls and bare fences.

Join the Gardens Director, Robert Bowden, as he helps you discover how easy it can be to turn an otherwise standard tree or shrub into a garden showpiece. One lucky class member will leave the class with a fruit tree to take home

Robert Bowden is the Director of Leu Gardens and author of Florida Top Ten Garden Guide and Florida Fruit and Vegetable Gardening: Plant, Grow, and Harvest the Best Edibles by Cool Springs Press.

Participants must withdraw from classes at least five days prior to the start of class in order to receive a full refund or credit. If we must cancel a class, we will make every effort to inform you prior to the class time, and you will receive a full refund or credit.

Only those registered for the class will be permitted in the classroom. Childcare services are not provided.
