Red Comice Espalier.

Having previously had to remove the top Bartlett pear from the tier of this espalier (seem bottom pic), I'm pleased that the remaining Red Comice has made enough growth to tie in another layer. As the extension growth wasn't very central I decided to train two uprights into a sort of U cordon-cum-espalier which will hopefully appear a little more symmetrical. I will replace the frame later in the year, and use a spirit level this time!
