Planting & Care

< Peaches and Nectarines prefer light, well-drained soil. If poor drainage is suspected, consider mounding 18 to 24 inches high by 4 feet wide or build a raised bed of 12 to 18 inches high and 3 feet square. Use native soil and plant directly into the mound or raised bed. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilize the mound and cool the soil temperature. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy. Peaches and Nectarines grow best in full sun in a location where they get at least 8 hours of direct sunlight. avoid areas where cold air or frost settle. White Peaches and nectarines are susceptible to moisture related diseases and benefit from being planted where they get the earliest morning sun, the drying sun. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, to get established, during the first year. Peach trees are very productive and will grow to 20' tall if you let them. Pruning in the summer to control the height of your tree. Below 10 feet is recommended to simplify maintenance and harvesting
