Planting Redhaven Peach Tree.

http://aejahep.notlong.com/ 26 May 2008 Planting Redhaven peach Tree.

A Redhaven peach tree was purchased today and planted. Method is shown in pictures. This is probably an ideal method for most trees, usually I make a circle, but the soil was so hard and packed, that I utilized a rectangle. Total time about three hours from start to finish.

Hey! I live in the best growing area in Canada. There are pockets in Ontario where the best fruits are grown in this large country.

Of the larger fruits, I have pear and cherry, and they thrive.

Within driving distance there are pears, peaches, apples, blueberries, saskatoons, cranberry to name a few, and the quality is unsurpassed.

Hi Durgan:
I live in the Belleville area and successfully grew a peach tree. It was an outstanding producer but unfortunately only lasted about 5 years!

Love peach trees, been in Atlanta for business trips quite alot... more peach tree their then one could ever imagine.

You have one amazing backyard Durgan. Here I have blueberries, raspberries, grapes, apples, prunes... all do well. Also have a kiwi plant... but I'm missing one of the sexes.. don't know which!!!! I tried pears but no success, I know a farm that has them about 1.5 hour from here, but never seen one right around here.
