Newly planted dwarf peach help!

rehabbingisgreenApril 27, 2012

I planted our dwarf hale haven peach and she's now gotten a few leaves that have turned yellow as well as the lower fruits on the tree seem to be deflated and shriveled now. Worried and I don't have enough experience with fruit trees so I don't know what to do.

We haven't had a freeze and I didn't fertilize her when planted.

Your tree had fruits when you planted it? Did you have it potted, before?

Yes it was purchased potted and has small fruits on it.

Too much water? What kind of soil is the tree in? Any pics?

Likely the original rootball has dried. Stick your finer into it to find out if that's true. Then dribble water directly into the root zone. Moisture won't move sideways from surrounding soil.

Transplanting can be a shock to a non-dormant tree. Even moving a potted tree from inside to outdoors can shock it.
