I have one peach tree already planted but have not seen any peaches. I have been told to plant two peach trees close together to get fruit. Am I correct?

Most (but not all) peaches are self-pollinating, which means that they do not need two trees. More likely, the soil is lacking in phosphorus. Have your soil tested to see what nutrients are lacking and then amend the soil to correct.
