Customer Reviews & Photos
- peach trees
I'm in the Northeast, so it's still in the house and started blooming. The flowers are beautiful and I look forward to the red leaves. The plant is somewhat small but I look forward to aggressive growth.
The first peaches were too small and hard and fell to the ground before reaching maturity but the overall health is better than the last i bought. Doing ver well so far.
You were fast at sending your product to me. So far the tree is up and running. I have some friends that have a mature plant, and I just loved it when I saw theirs. The peaches looked great! But the leaf and color of the plant was phenomenal. I hope it makes it through our Nebraska winter. Thank you! NS
It seems to be doing reasonably well, not growing fast, but growing, the peaches it had when it arrived fell off but it was not guaranteed to have any the first year so that’s fine, we’ll see how it goes. Seems healthy overall so I’m satisfied.
My tree arrive well packed and in excellent shape and is thriving. It was a well established, leafed out plant growing in a container. I have bought other trees this year, from three other online nurseries, and all these came as dormant, bare-root plants, poorly packed with dried out roots. All arrived dead - not one of them leafed out. Fast Growing Trees is clearly one of the best places to by trees. I just wish they offered more varieties, such as the new, disease resistant American elm and the paperbark maple that my wife wants.
Planting & Care
Known as Prunus persica Bonfire, the Bonfire Peach Tree performs best in USDA growing zones 5 to 8. These trees are moderate growers, maturing to a manageable mature height that fits in any space.
1. Planting: Plant your tree in well-drained soil in a location that receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your tree from wind by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home. Once you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice the size of the tree's the root ball and just a little shallower. Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Bonfire and gently position them downward in the hole. Then, hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go. Finally, water to settle the soil.
If you're planting in a container, simply ensure that the pot's size is twice the size of your Bonfire's shipped container. The new pot should also have plenty of drainage holes. Finally, choose a sunny location on the patio, in your backyard or front or side of your house.
2. Watering: Keep the soil around your Bonfire Patio Peach Tree moist. Watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water.
Tip: Yellowing of the leaves is a common sign of overwatering while leaves that are dry and brown can be a sign of underwatering.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your tree with a well-balanced fertilizer, such as a 12-12-12 formula. Apply in spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this in the summer and fall as well.
4. Pruning: Bonfire Peach Trees should only be pruned while the plant is dormant without leaves. That is usually in winter or early spring before the leaf buds open up.
