#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Veteran Peach trees in full sun, where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. A planting site that receives the drying power of the morning sun is optimal.

Peaches need well-drained soils. Improve drainage if you see puddles long after a rainstorm. Create a mounded heap of soil 12 to 18 inches above the soil line and 3 feet out from the trunk, or plant in a raised bed.

Give a thick layer of mulch over the root system. Apply at least 3 to 4 inches of mulch, and spread it out 3 feet from the outside of the canopy.

Protect your harvest in colder climates with good air circulation. Don’t plant in low-lying areas that trap cold, frosty air.
