Summer Peach Tree Watering, 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????

Could have a root problem or Peach Twig Bore; I would say it is a goner; but you would find much more wisdom on the Fruit and Orchard forum.

Someone please tell me why AGAIN why people who live in the hottest and driest part of the country surround plants with masonry walls and no mulch? :-(

In his defense the masonry wall probably came with the house.

rhizo_1 I decided, not to put mulch because in Arizona we have a big "SCORPION" problem which happens to love mulch... I have another peach tree that did the same thing last year. Now Its growing really nice, even though its 115 degrees....
