Espalier/fan trained fruit trees sound like a good idea up here in Derbyshire (maximising light levels and warmth on a south facing wall etc) but the only problem being I dont have any borders that butt up to any walls. Is it possible to train a fruit tree to grow as an archway (ie over a path that runs around the perimeter of the house) then 'fan out' along the wall? Any reason why it wouldnt work? On the same note can you train roses in this way to?
hopefully what i just typed made sense!!!
