planting a peach tree organically
My neighbor just gave me a peach tree. It's about 4 feet tall. This is not a grafted tree.
How should I prepare and/or amend the planting hole? My soil is generally good to begin with, though quite rocky (shale) in the area where I intend to plant. I'm sure the soil is somewhat acidic, like most soils in the area.
I have aged rabbit manure available in large quantities. I also have shredded leaves, used coffee grounds, limestone, and some compost already in my possession (I'd hoped to put the compost on the vegetable garden, but I will re-purpose it if that makes more sense). I have a chipped-up brush pile which might make a good mulch once the tree is planted.
I have used Gardens Alive! fertilizers in the past for other things, and have been considering getting their "build up" formula for fruit trees. However, since the tree has already arrived (in a bucket, dug up from the neighbor's brother-in-law's yard), and the fertilizer hasn't, I wouldn't be able to put this at the bottom of the hole, and I'd need to side-dress after planting.
Can any of you wise folks advise me on how best to proceed? I have no experience with fruit trees.
