I live in east TN. I want to know what to use to prevent brown rot. It's the first of March- dormant oil until when? Buds are forming but not open. What about sulfur spray? When should it be used and how often? Same for fruit tree spray, when to start and how often? Can I use sulfur spray and fruit tree spray during the same time span? For instance, one spray one day then two days later the other? THANK YOU! No fruit for two years! Also, I have apple trees.
The fruit spray and the sulfur spray should treat for the same thing so you only need to use one or the other.
Start spraying now and spray every 2-3 weeks until the blossoms fade. Then spray again when the peaches start to ripen.
I do not know when to spray my peach trees or my plum trees. What kind of spray should I use to keep the worms and bugs off of them?
When is the right time to spray peach trees to prevent worms in the fruit, and what is a good insect spray to use?

Now that you have told me about peach tree diseases, how do I treat them? Do I use sulfur?
Which disease do you think your peach tree has? We can give specific instructions if you let us know the disease.
I need to know how to prune a peach tree. I think I will have a lot of peaches this year. Last year I had a lot, but they were very small. If you can help me I would appreciate it.
Cut back the tall-growing limbs and 1/3 of all new growth. Cut out all dead, broken, diseased branches. Remove old wood that previously produced fruit (it will not produce again) as well as crossing or rubbing branches. Aim for a funnel-like shape with fruiting branches about 1 foot apart over the top of the tree.
I'm sure this question sounds unusual to you, but every year my peach tree is loaded with peaches; and every year, these same peaches have a clear jelly-like substance on them. Can my peach tree be treated for this?
Not unusual. This is a sign of a problem with the tree. It has peach borers. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/peach-tree-borer.htm
I have one peach tree already planted but have not seen any peaches. I have been told to plant two peach trees close together to get fruit. Am I correct?
Most (but not all) peaches are self-pollinating, which means that they do not need two trees. More likely, the soil is lacking in phosphorus. Have your soil tested to see what nutrients are lacking and then amend the soil to correct.
