I live in Houston, TX and just planted two peach trees in containers. My Earligrande tree has some leaves that are turning brown and folding up (pictures attached). Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? And how to fix it?
Thanks!

Hi Logan,

Yes we had about 1.5” last week. Since the trees are in containers I moved them into our garage until temperatures were back above freezing for good. I’d guess it was probably in the upper 30s in the garage at some points though. If it was the cold, do you know if the leaves would return to normal at some point?

The leaves that are affected will stay like that but the others should be alright. They could have got too warm in the garage as well.

Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it. Looking again today, it seems like most of the affected leaves are on new growth. This would make sense as these leaves would be more vulnerable to the elements. Would it be worthwhile to remove the damaged leaves? Or does it not really matter?

It all depends on how many leaves are affected, you could take off some of the worst ones. Here in the UK peaches aren't even growing yet.

Thanks for all of your feedback. I’ll probably remove some of the leaves and see if that helps.
