Apple Espalier In A Tiny Potager

Her potager is barely 3' deep, below.
 No problem planting a pair of espalier apple trees, above.  They require little space.
She offered some of her collards, above, but they were too pretty to pick.

I espalier a lot of things.  Tried a hydrangea espalier?  Lushness without effort, sasanqua's too.  Sometimes, I espalier, truly due to tight space.

I need to take advantage of espalier for tight spaces in my residential designs...once I own a contracting and maintenance business, to go with a nursery.

Tara, what variety of apple did you use? Love this idea! On my wee lot, I've got nothing BUT tight spaces!
