The Q&A Archives: How To Espalier A Camellia

Question: I recently purchased two Monrovia Kramer's Supreme camellia plants in one gallon containers. I would like to begin training them on espaliers placed against the wall of my garage. Two part question: How far from the wall would you recommend placing the trellis to give the plants room to grow and that also would look attractive, and secondly, since they are only about 18-24 inches tall right now, at what point would I begin pruning and securing branches to the trellis? Any other tips you have would be appreciated.
