We Need Turnbuckles for our Espalier. Who knew?!

This is the Fan Cordon Design: Our Lead Pick 

For years I have been wanting an Espalier, or living fence, for years ever since seeing one in our friend Sue's garden. We finally have the area all ready to plant, so now we are down to the details. 

We found this video on YouTube which gave us a great tip about turnbuckles. You have to use wire to train the tree into the shape you desire. After time, the wire stretches out, so using turnbuckles in the wire allows you to tighten it with a screwdriver. Awesome tip!

Wow! Way too many turnbuckles to choose from! Roo's job!
