In a classic case of attempting to run before I can walk, I bought an espalier peach tree.

I'm hoping to plant it this weekend (against a warm, sheltered, south-east facing wall).

The tree is currently still in its pot and is supported by a complex support made of bamboo.

Should I leave the tree attached to this support when I plant it or should I remove the support and attach it to wires I've attached to the wall? If I should leave it attached, should I plant it such that the support is between the tree and the wall or such that the tree is against the wall with the support is in front of it?

Take out the supports, make sure you fix it to the wires as similar as possible. Then continue the training.
Bill.

if the wires are too far apart leave the canes on. was it an espalier or a fan usually it is the later and is easier to train.
