Herb Garden

After 3 days of hard work, we have finished our herb garden. The herb spiral in the centre is planted with culinary herbs. http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m604/Bristolbelle/DSC_0006a.jpg http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m604/Bristolbelle/DSC_0005a.jpg http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m604/...

Help needed how do I Fan train a cherry tree?

I bought a Morello Cherry from q&b last week. And I would like to fan train it. I have planted it 1ft away from the wall and at a slight angle. Where on earth do I start to prune? I dont know what root stock it has either. All that it says is that it will grow 16ft if not trimmed.
