#ProPlantTips for Care
Give Peach trees at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. If you can, a site with morning sun will quickly dry off the foliage from overnight dew and keep your tree healthy.
Air circulation is important, too. Don’t plant too close to buildings, or where air gets trapped.
Peaches grow best in fertile, well-drained soils. If you have poor drainage, bring in additional soil in a mounded heap of soil 12 to 18 inches above the soil line and 3 feet wide. Plant in that mound.
Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Apply mulch over the top of the root system to a depth of 3 inches, and spread the mulch out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy.
