Espalier Kit – Post-Mounted

Starter kit for installing wire between posts

With this kit you will get all the components you require to install a 4 wire ladder espalier set-up between posts as shown in the diagram below. (Wire not included) This set-up is ideal for situations where you don’t have an existing wall or fence for surface mounting and can be used to espalier fruit trees or as a growing frame for climbing plants or vegetables such as tomatoes, beans, peas etc. It may also be useful for growing a privacy screen. Use 2.0mm galvanised soft wire or stainless steel wire rope (not braided wire) for coastal environments.
