Hi Tui, we have a neighbour's pomegranate tree growing over our fence. How can I keep it there but pulled back out of the way a bit? Can we tuck it in behind some espalier wire so it still produces and looks lovely without taking up our space?
Yes, you can espalier pomegranate, it looks like it is growing over to the sunny side of the fence. Attach wires to your fence/retaining wall, then start trimming, tying back and training so that it doesn't invade your space. It might be a nice courtesy to talk to your neighbour first, legally you can remove anything that is over your boundary or fence line. I would suggest running a couple of wires 3 metres long to train the tree, garden wire is sufficient, you don't need No 8 wire to do this. Regards, The Tui Team.
