My white Peach tree seems to be stunted. It just doesn't seem to want to grow taller. Not sure what the problem is...

I gave this Mandy some copper about a week ago as the leaves are curled and slightly yellowed in one area but think it may need something else like zinc or manganese - open to suggestions!

dwarf mulberry (Grafted) 10/10

DonnaB's Edible Fruits
Update: 3559 days 13hrs

Comments: -

This tree has just flourished and the fruit is yummo! Have had no problems with it despite it being in a north/west facing aspect and dealing with wind. Hoping to have a windbreak by way of passionfruit all along the back fence but the Mluberry doesn't seem to care anywhere. She is lush, tall and I love her :) It is only 2 metres from the septic tank and I thought it being a dwarf it would be ok - but perhaps not. May have to move her...
