I bought a peach tree, left it in its container. It started growing fruit. I got 3 of the best peaches I've had. Then we had a lot of rain, and it stayed very wet. It looked like it died, dropped all its leaves. Then it started growing new leaves at the tips of the branches. What do I do?

Peach Trees should be planted out into the ground, unless you have a Dwarf variety.
If you are leaving the tree in a container, you will need a 15 gallon size pot.
The container should have several drainage holes and be lifted so excess water can drain away.
Your tree should be placed where it gets at least 6 hours of sunlight and watering is crucial for a container tree. When the soil dries out water throughly.
Fertilizer should be applied every couple of weeks.
