Care of Peach Tree

Anonymous added on January 13, 2014 | Answered

When is the appropriate time of year to cut back the branches of a peach tree? The tree is about 2 years old and produced quite a few peaches last year, but they were small. The branches are long and lanky, too weak for nice to large peaches this season.
