Make sure it has a good drainage system and full sunlight. They like plenty of water and pruning is very important. Do this before the growing cycle starts in spring.

Make sure your peach tree has plenty of sun, well drained soil, and is kept bug and disease free. Prune your tree when it has gone dormant.

Peach trees love the sun and need well drained soil to produce fruit. There are special care tips for insects and fertilizers so contacting a local nursery would be helpful.

Well basically you have to make sure that you water it daily. Also add some nutrients to the soil every week so that the peaches can grow well. Also do not add chemicals to the tree at all because you do not want the chemicals to get in the way of growing peaches.

There should have been something in the pot the tree came in and all you need to do is take it and read it carefully.


Answer by  nandhu (104)

Plant the tree in ground. Give it a plenty of sun and water it well until it is established. Patio peach tree is fairly hardy in cold climates, but will freeze if it is budding out before freezing weather. You must feed and water it often. Patio peach trees are less likely to suffer from pest problems.
