One of my goals is to grow our own fruit trees, but I know it can be a time-consuming process. I've read that you can't even eat the fruit for the first year or two for many fruits that you grow at home, too. My aunt bought a house with a peach tree in the front yard, and I'm so excited to eat peaches from it! I also want to have one of my own, so these peach growing tips will come in handy.
I don't know the first thing about peach varieties, so I'm so glad there are guides like this to help me get started. Where I live, temperatures rarely get as low as -10, but it can happen, so that does worry me a bit with a new tree. Any tips for keeping trees safe when it frosts? I know we've used plastic to help before with frosts on other plants and trees so maybe that is the solution.
