Position

Full sun, although they can tolerate some shade, they will yield more fruit the more sun they receive and grow more vigorously

Size

Peach trees grow to anything from 4 metres plus tall and wide. Plan the site before planting, keeping the tree away from external walls, electrical lines and other trees. Plant in a protected area if possible as strong winds can damage branches and leaves.

Soil Type

Peach trees are not fussy about soil type but prefer slightly acidic soil. Loosen the soil in the area before planting about 1.5mts depth in your normal garden soil and good drainage is important.

Mulch

Add a thick layer of pine-bark mulch keeping about 20-30cms away from the tree trunk. This will keep the soil moist and keep the weeds at bay.

Watering

Water every second day after transplanting for about a week, thereafter, reduce to twice a week in dry or hot weather for the next 2-3 months.
Water every couple of weeks if there is no rain. Too much water can cause root rot, but do not allow the roots to dry out completely.

Pruning

Prune peach trees during the dormant season (late winter or early spring) to remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches. Also, thin out crowded branches to improve airflow and sunlight penetration, which helps reduce the risk of fungal diseases.

Fertilising

Use our slow-release nitrogen-rich all plant fertiliser. Apply 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months. The roots will absorb what they required.

Pest and Disease Control

Monitor the tree regularly for common peach tree pests such as aphids, peach tree borers, and fruit flies. Use organic pest control methods; EM Control is a reasonable and efficient option. Implement proper sanitation practices, such as removing fallen leaves and fruit, to reduce the risk of diseases like peach leaf curl or brown rot.
