c. n.

Definizione

Pattern of a type of espalier to train the growth as a single stem, in which the rows are oriented at an oblique angle. 1

Nota

Cordons can be grown upright, supported by a permanent stake or tied to horizontal wires stretched along a fence. If they are tied to wires on a fence, they can be tied to a bamboo “splint” and gradually pull over until they are growing at 5 degrees. Your cordon is then known as an “oblique cordon”. 2

Contesto

Some plants, particularly some apples, make more fruiting spurs if they are grown as oblique cordons. 3
