Q.Can Belle Of Georgia Peach Trees Grow In Containers?
I wanted to plant more this year (quarantine life), and got a peach tree to grow in a container since I heard they can be grown this way. But now I am wondering if this variety needs to be planted in the ground?

There are two varieties! There is a standard and a dwarf, and it will depend on which you have.
The standard can be grown in container, but it will not be easy. This will require annual root and top pruning, and very specific care. It is much easier to plant the standard in ground to avoid extra work, or killing the plants.
The dwarf will grow, in container, very well.
Here is an article for more information on the tree:
