Q.How to Grow peach trees indoors
I started planting peach trees from the small trees that grew after peaches fell in my yard. It started as a project to do with my 4 year old. Now with winter coming to Connecticut, what do I do with my 17 trees that are planted in pots and range between 10-24 inches tall?

This is easily done while they are this young. Later, though, this can be tricky. I, myself, do a lot of container growing of trees that I should not be able to grow here in my state of TN. For now, just put them in good soil, and keep them very well lit. Reduce watering in the winter, and when they get about 2 feet tall, you will want to cut the top off about halfway down the plant. This will promote side branching and help keep them small while in container. Later you will have to do some root pruning, but you can ask that question next year. For now, just give them plenty of light, and a good quality potting soil.
