The usual way to train espaliers up against a wall is to start with one or two year old whips, a single stem. If yours is already multibranched, you will have to do some careful pruning to get the right shape. I would do that and move the tree with as large a rootball as you can get, in winter when the tree is dormant.

I wouldnt pinch out any more if you want flowers this year. I assume they are spray crysanths.

For giant display or exhibition type, you disbud to leave one bud per stem.

You won't need to propagate it. It seeds easily. Just scatter where you want it.

Any ideas for an entry.....
