cordon

sul serio

I'm proof-reading a translation into English about gardening equipment. They proudly announce that with pruning shears one can make a fruit wall (espalier) or a cordon. As espalier was left as in the original French, I wonder what cordon could mean in this context. Any help much appreciated.
