Digging Deeper: Wilding Walls, Fruiting Fences - CANCELED

Garden of Shobha Vanchiswar & Murali Mani

After reviewing current news about the spreading of coronavirus (COVID-19), we regret to inform you that we have canceled this event. This does not directly affect other events of the Garden Conservancy.


Garden designer Shobha Vanchiswar and her husband, Murali Mani, created this award-winning small garden with big ideas, all cleverly adapted or redefined to suit the scale of their site. Join them as they share two surprisingly simple, cost-effective techniques that work well in gardens of any size: espalier and vertical gardening. The ancient art of espalier is a perfect marriage of form and function. Trees, typically fruiting varieties, are trained into two-dimensional structures. Because growth is so controlled, espalier allows one to produce higher quality fruit in smaller spaces. Sharing what they’ve learned through trial and error, Shobha and Murali will also describe their techniques—inspired by French botanist Patrick Blanc—for creating a vertical garden to transform a cinder-block wall into a lush horticultural feature.
