Peach Losing Leaves

jlb1943 added on October 19, 2011 | Answered

I planted a July Elberta peach tree about one month ago in our backyard. It had a lot of leaves with a healthy root ball. I hand water it about twice a week. It has recently lost almost all of its leaves. Why is this?

You may not be watering deep enough. When trees are first planted, they need huge amounts of water to establish well. I would water for longer periods of time.

The other issue may be the tree may be in transplant shock. This article will help with that:
