My husband planted a peach tree this year. We got 12 peaches this year b.i.o.n.

How do I protect the little thing for the winter?

My husband is very ill and will not see the spring. Hope his peach tree will. Any ideas?

We are north of 40.

Hi Planter:

Sorry to hear about your husband.

I've got a couple of peach trees, dad had many. We're in Maryland and don't do anything to them for winter except clean up fallen fruit and leaves.

In late winter/early spring, I spray with dormant oil spray to smother pests. You have to do this before the buds pop.

One other thing, just keep an eye on the tree trunk for "oozing." Peaches are prone to borers, or at least around here they are, and a borer will kill a young peach tree in a hurry.

good luck.

Hello Planter, like Kat, I don't know much about peach trees. Just wanted to say hi and ask you to come back when you feel like it.
Take Care..
