Planting & Care

Peaches prefer well-drained soils. If poor drainage is suspected plant in a mound or raised bed 12 to 18 inches high and 3 to 4 feet wide. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilize the soil temperature. Peaches grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. It is always preferable to favor a location with morning sun as this is the drying sun to help with disease control. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Prune the tree to control the height. Peach trees are very productive, and will grow to 18 feet tall if left un pruned. Use summer pruning as a means of size control. Enjoy clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring.
