Peach Trees

Anonymous added on May 15, 2014 | Answered

I want to plant a peach tree bought from a nursery. The tree already has small fruits about the size of a dime. Is it okay to plant it like normal or should I sink the whole pot in the ground and wait for fall?

You can go ahead and plant the tree but make sure the planting hole is the same depth as the pot it's currently in and flush with the soil level to prevent pooling of water, which can lead to rot. Also, be sure to keep it well watered, especially if the tree is already trying to put out more fruit.
