Watering Peach Tree in the Summer, Please help!!

MrThomas85June 27, 2012

Please Help, I have had my Peach Tree since March. It was in a 24inch box and had lots of fruit!!! Now going into June with extreme heat up to 115 degrees every day. It looks like the peach tree is dying..... I have been deep watering every other day the whole month of June. But it still looks like it is dying!!!! Please help!!! I don't know if I am watering to much or not enough... Every time I water I fill the Well up, Is this right????

At this point you are likely out of luck. It could be that you drown the tree. That soil looks like it might have poor drainage. Next year get a bare root and plant earlier. If the soil drains poorly plant on a mound. Also in 115F heat, mulch and try to get away from that concrete wall.

Where are you located and does your soil drain poorly?
