Peaches - so many things to do with them
Monday, July 25
There are so many different things that you can do with peaches. Peach trees are a great investment to plant in your yard because they don’t only add value to your home but they can also save you money.
By being able to grow your own peaches it can save you time and money because you won’t have to go to the store or farmers market in order to buy peaches so that you can make peach jam, jelly, pies or preserves.
A young peach tree when first planted will generally not bear fruit the first year but then over the next few years will produce up to 5 gallons of peaches per tree. Peach trees can reach heights of up to 30 feet and reach dimensions of up to 20 feet. Peach trees love good sandy soil and soil that is well drained and an area that gets partial shade and sun. Peach trees are a great addition to any home or landscape because they can offer you fresh fruits for many years to come.
Peach trees are low maintenance and can grow in many types of weather, climate conditions and soil types. After you plant a peach tree the only thing you need to do is monitor it regularly for pests and insects which can start eating your leaves and then eventually kill the peach tree. The best thing to do is to purchase an insecticide that can kill pests and keep them from getting on your plants before they start, this can be found in dust form or liquid form.
