Peaches

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.
