Wednesday Word Of The Week – Festoon

To festoon is to decorate elaborately. It’s also the name of a chain of flowers and/or foliage hung in a curve as decoration (also known as a swag) or a carved or moulded ornament reflecting this.

It’s not listed in my dictionary, but I believe festooning is the name for the technique of bending and tying down fruit tree branches to restrict vigour, whilst increasing productivity.
