Can I start a peach tree from a peach seed? If so, does the seed need to be dried, and when should I plant? Do I plant with seed point up?

There are two ways to grow peaches from the seed or pit. First, collect peach pits during summer and sow them directly in the ground in fall about 4 inches deep. Add some mulch to the planting area. It should sprout in the spring. Alternatively, you can place the seed in a small pot about three months before the last frost date in your area. Dampen the soil and cover with a plastic bag. Place it in the refrigerator until threat of frost has passed. Take the pot out of the bag and place in a warm, sunny window keeping the soil moist. Transplant outdoors in spring.
