Peach/Nectarine

Out by the shed, near the chicken coop. The place everyone hangs out to discuss the various edibles they raise in their gardens/allotments.

Peach/Nectarine

Postby Zosherooney » February 18th, 2017, 11:25 am

Last year a peach or nectarine stone was found sprouting. It ended up in a pot and the central stem grew to about 9 inches. It came indoors for the winter, sitting at the stem of one of my loquat plants. I have just noticed small leaves now emerging from the central stem and looking good too. Ain't nature grand ! :tu:

i don't think you need to bring it indoors for the winter. all the ones that i have found growing in our garden (apart from the one my parner slashed back every year until i noticed it) are potted up and left outside.
an old man my mother used to look after had two, grown from stones, in his back garden in north hertfordshire. they were massive and laden with peaches every year. they aren't as tender as people think - just look out for peach leaf curl.
