Planting & Care

Peaches prefer light, well-drained, somewhat sandy soil. 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. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Prune the trees annually in Winter when they are dormant to enhance productivity. Peach trees are very productive, and will grow to 25' tall. Enjoy clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring.
