Site Selection – Plant in full sun. In hot climates, consider a space where the tree receives afternoon shade to reduce fruit scalding. If planting, prepare your site with compost, soil improvers, or composted manure.

Planting Dig your hole at the time of planting. Dig a hole twice the width of the rootball/pot, and one and a half deep. Backfill with a mixture of premium garden soil and good quality soil from the hole. Mulch and water in well. Note – do not use this fill in extremely clay or sandy soils. Create a mound, spend time adjusting your soil, or use a pot. See more information about this in the growing guides in our Plant Care tab.

Potting – Use a pot at least 50cms wide and deep. Use high quality premium potting mix, you may add perlite or pine bark to add structure. Mulch and water in well.

Staking – Staking may not be necessary but where utilised, use two stakes with soft, loose ties around the tree. Ensure the tree can still ‘wiggle’ in the wind to develop strong anchorage on its own. Remove the stakes when the trunk is thicker than the stake used, or in year 2.

Watering – Use the 1,2,3,4 method to establish. Water once a day for a week, then every two days for two weeks, then every three days for three weeks, and so on. Always adjust to your local weather and increase watering in hot and windy weather, decrease in cold or rainy weather.

Fertilising – Use a balanced fertiliser blend with added nitrogen. Peaches and nectarines are hungry in comparison to other deciduous fruit trees. The main fertilising period is Spring and Autumn. To give you a general guide, PlantNet® has created a great guide for fertilising deciduous fruit trees in pots from trial work completed by PlantNet® over a 3 year period.

Pruning – Prune bareroot or dormant trees in winter back by 1/3 at time of planting. Prune at the end of winter every following year. See the Plant Care tab linked below for more information.

Pest & Disease Control – Spray with an organic Bordeaux spray at the start of winter, and twice just before bud swell at the end of winter. This controls many diseases, including leaf curl, and overwintering pests. Many insect pests can be controlled with netting once flowers have formed fruit.
