The Q&A Archives: Espalier

Question: Is there a method of attaching plants (camelia) to a brick wall without using screws to hold wire? I plan to espalier a hardy camelia, but don't relish drilling holes in the brick wall. Thanks for any suggestions. Linda Mathis

Answer: There are special drill bits and fasteners for use on brick, check with a good hardware store. The only alternative I can think of is to install a trellis (or the wires) supported on sturdy posts in the ground.
