How to plant apricot and peach trees
Peach trees prefer a warm, dry and sunny climate. They come into blossom earlier than other fruit trees, so you have to be careful of frost. If you plant the trees into containers, they can be moved inside if frost is forecast. You will need to use a large container with drainage holes at the bottom, preferably 45 cm, although a 30cm pot is fine.
Put some grit or small pebbles at the bottom of the pot to encourage drainage. Put the peach or apricot tree into the pot and pack compost around the edges, making sure to leave a 2cm gap at the top to enable easy watering. Water, put in the sunniest location, and use a liquid feed every ten days. Water frequently, but let the soil dry out in between.
