Anyone growing peaches in Minnesota?
I bought two Contender peach trees from Gurney's last year. No one I asked advice from said they would make it through the winter, but they did to my surprise. The one even had about six blossoms on it and right now I even have one peach starting, now weather it falls off I wont know. It took a week of -40 degree weather in February and a late freeze in April. Now that I have made it through one winter, I really dont know how to prune the tree and when to prune it. I have gotten advice from people who grow them in the south, but it doesnt relate to the North, as the seasons are so different. They are growing in branches now and I know I need to prune some of them, but when and how? I am just hoping there are some people in North Dakota and Minnesota that can help. Thanks Any other tips for growing peaches would be MUCH APPRECIATED!
