Pleached walks, tunnels and arbours
Pleaching is a method of training trees to produce a narrow screen or hedge by tying in and interlacing flexible young shoots along a supporting framework. Use this technique to make walks, arbours, tunnels and arches.
Timing: Train shoots in summer, prune in winter
