Answer: Hi Rodney,

Peaches are heavy feeders, needing more nitrogen than any other fruit tree. As well as applying a good quality fruit tree fertiliser, such as Dynamic Lifter Advanced for Fruit & Citrus,in Spring and Autumn, you may need to supplemnt with extra nitrogen eg. blood and bone to encourage new growth and healthy leaves. Regular watering and mulching is imporant at this time of year to ensure good quality, sweet tasting fruit.

Enjoy harvesting your peaches.
