This past summer we planted peach trees that were probably 2 yrs old. We had a few peaches on each tree that were wonderful. Toward the end of summer, the trees lost all their leaves. This is March now and they still have no leaves. Although the branches are still green (inside), we had a terribly dry summer in Texas but we did water them daily. Shouldn’t they be getting leaves by now?
