Planting:

Space plants according to ultimate width. Choose a location in full sun. While adaptable to different soils, Peach trees prefer good drainage. Staking is advisable the first year.


Maintenance:

Cut back newly planted trees to 30 inches in height, just above a lateral branch or bud. Prune while dormant to correct structural defects and to open the center to sunlight. Contact your local State Extension Service for a regular spraying regimen for insects and disease problems.
