Peach Trees

Fruit Tree

NewB Planter added on May 4, 2011 | Answered

Hello all, Well, I bought two fruit trees from Home Depot. One peach tree and also one Anna apple tree. When I bought the trees, the Home Depot guy told me to add compost, dirt and fertilizer! Then someone else said I should not have done that! Did I just kill my newly planted trees by adding fertilizer? Please help!

You should not add fertilizer to the planting hole because the nitrogen in raw fertilizer can burn the roots. You don't need to dig up the tree and plant it somewhere else though. Just make sure that you are watering alot to help dilute the fertilizer and keep it from being so concentrated that it burns the roots.
