Peaches in a Pot!
Courtesy of Dorling Kindersley Limited
The best fruit trees for pots are those grown on dwarfing rootstocks that still produce full-sized fruit. Peaches are grafted onto 'Pixy' or 'St. Julien A'. For good peaches try 'Bonanza' and 'Garden Lady'. Plant in large pots of soil-based potting mix, keep in a sheltered, sunny spot, and protect the blossom with plastic sheeting. Feed in spring with all-purpose fertilizer, and apply tomato food every week after flowering. No pruning is needed...
Share you very own juicy peaches with family and good friends, they will appreciate and enjoy your special efforts...
