Florda Prince Peach- help needed!

    2 responses

Amy in Brisbane starts with ...
I recently purchased a Florda Prince peach tree that I planted into the garden in a duo with Nectarine 'Sunraycer'. Dug the soil over and added a little mixed composted manure and a handful of gypsum as we have a fair amount of clay. The nectarine is growing great guns but the peach appears to be struggling. It looked droopy while still in its pot, even after watering and then dropped its mature leaves after planting out into the garden. It has a few young leaves on it but they have a slight chlorosis look with yellowed leaves and green veins.

The care it has received so far is the same as the nectarine... seasol on planting. Water when it hasn't rained for a couple of weeks (finger test soil for dryness)- think I have only needed to water it once as it has rained a couple of times recently. Recently sprayed all of my fruit trees with copper oxychlorate. Sugar cane mulch.

Does anyone have any hints or tips for my peach? Many thanks!
