Typically, transplanting should be done in spring (April), preferably before leaf buds have started turning green. In areas that have cool winters, it is done anytime when the tree is dormant. If the tree has new buds on it, it is best to wait until the following year. Since all of the fruiting and leaf buds are formed on the previous year's wood (growth), transplant peach trees before the fruiting bud shows any pink.

If the tree to be planted is in a pot it could be transplanted any time the ground can be dug. If it is extremely cold, I would wait to warmer days. If the tree is not transplanted, I would protect the pot or rootball on extremely cold days.
