    so I just planted a peach tree for my Mother and it’s a June gold! I’m excited and curious of the growth stages. Here’s the one I planted. It needs staked and some mulch.

    Yes, please stake it. The wind can rock the tree and even if you see no damage it can cause the fine baby roots to break off slowing down the trees growth considerably. Also keep the suckers at the base of the tree trimmed off. Be sure not to mound the soil or mulch up onthe base of the tree any higher than where the dirt was in the pot. Good luck!

    My one peach tree planted in 2008, grown in a pot. To get quality fruit the small forming fruit must be culled to about 8 inches apart on each branch. There are numerous fruit and the job can be tedious. I do it over several days. I end up with from 50 to 100 quality fruit. A tree ripened peach is food for the gods. I am on the cusp of being able to grow peaches, since some years Spring frost destroys the buds.
