Grown in the heart of East Sussex

Cordon

A narrow tree form which is a convenient to grow against a wall or fence or to even create an arch. This system could also be used to create a hedge or partition in the garden. Cordons are pruned hard each summer creating fruiting spurs. This gives a high yielding crop in a small space, an ideal opportunity to plant several varieties giving you eating, cooking, early and late varieties. May even be planted in diagonal formation for great visual effect.
