When do I plant fruit trees here?
I am bound and determined to plant a dwarf peach for next season and I would be happy to wait 1 season for fruit, if necessary. I plant lots of veggies, but never fruit trees, so I have some questions.
Should I plant a bare root tree or 1 in a container from the Nursery? When would each of those be planted?
I am thinking of a Bonanza peach as it is a true dwarf (5 - 6 feet tall), only needs 400 hours of chill, and is a freestone. Is there another tree that someone thinks is better suited for Sunset zone 15.
If you think bare root is the way to go, do you recommend mail order or nursery?
Thanks for any and all help.
