Would you like to see my peach tree?
I think there are ten peaches on it. At the moment they are the size of a large walnut. When we bought it, the poor tree was loaded with baby peaches. I snipped the majority of them off.
The tree is potted up in John Innes no 3. A couple of weeks ago i worked some fruit fertilizer into the top of the compost. From now on, once a week i am adding some seaweed solution to the watering can.
Luckily because of my greenhouse, i can move the peach tree undercover in winter & spring. So i hope to avoid the dreaded peach curl.
If my peach tree proves to be a success, i may have to invest in a dwarf nectarine version next year.
If my blueberries survive the birds, i may freeze some to use when the peaches are ready. I really want to try peach & blueberry cobbler.
