    I'm planning to plant apples as a cordon, I was considering also planting plums in a cordon but everything I read suggests plums are not normally grown as a cordon, this is apparently because all of the plum rootstocks are too vigorous and can't be successfully contained. I'd be interested to know how it turns out for you.

    Very nice. Now that these have been planted for 2 years, can we see a follow-up photo or video of the progress?

    Really helpful video. We will be growing our first fruit trees this year. Thanks also for the demonstration on how to erect the supports. That's our weekends taken care of for a while!

    I used cardboard instead of carpet – I didn't really want carpet/chemicals over my fruit trees. Great video!

    Hi, I didn't understand why you slanted the tree, wouldn't it try to correct itself thru its life? Is Cordon the type of fruit?

    Hello Tony, thankyou for your time in making this video. I have purchased some fruit trees, but my permanent beds are not ready, some are potted,some have plastic covering the roots.
    Should I pot them up and keep them vertical or at 45° , create a nursery bed with supports and plant at 45° and prune, it maybe that it is 12 months before the permanent beds are ready, in the worst case.

    😆 Happy Gardening, Terry.

    Another great masterclass. This is what you do best mate. Hugh amount of content summed up really well and presented in a way that anyone can understand without any sense of talking down to people. This is another video that will do really well for you, although isn't this also a version of espalier methods as well? I would have thought more people would refer to it as that rather than cordon, but I'll admit I didn't do any search numbers to find out. Great video mate. I hope it does really well for you. All the best.

    Tony did you hammer the posts in?.. If so how deep, or did you concrete the posts in? Last question the cable tighteners who supplied you with them…..With Regards Mark…Bye the way great video..

    Why are the trees planted at an angle as opposed to straight up ?

    Hi Tony, a good informative episode. For tying in branches, I use 1/2 wide dressmakers elastic. It expands with the branch growth and does not rub. You will get a couple of seasons out of it. Cheers…Nigel 👍🏻

    Hi Tony, I was to a garden centre just a few days ago and bought some cherry and plum trees, and I was advised not to prune them at all, maybe in august if i really want to but definitely not now as they would get sick. But you prune your plum tree in this video. So can cherries and plums be pruned, or did you just do it because you only cut off just 1-2 little branches, so that's nothing major? I would want to cut off a few branches that grow towards the centre or crossing each other, but i really dont want to hurt my trees. Can I ask what you think of that?

    Thanks for another great video Tony. Can any type of fruit tree be grown as a cordon?
