Espalier is the art of training your fruit trees to grow against a wall or fence. Trusty secateurs in hand, our resident pruning pro, Anton Roux, will invite guests to admire the various espaliered fruit trees on display in Babylonstoren’s garden – apples, pears, quinces and nectarines. He will then get down to the details of the different stages of tree shaping in the espalier style, from year one to year ten. And then it’s over to you – grab a pair of secateurs and practise the technique on a tree that you can take home with you.

Steaming coffee from the Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Spice House is included.
