Yellow leaves is a sign of either: overwatering or underwatering.
Water your tree no more than once per week.
A newly planted tree from a 5 gallon pot needs about 10 gallons per week.
A tree 5-6 foot high and wide needs about 25 gal. / week.
After at least a quarter inch of rain, you need not water for one week.
If the leaf veins are somewhat green but the leaf body is yellowing, you are over watering.

Please post a picture of the leaves.

Urea is straight nitrogen. When the tree is flowering and/or fruiting, Nitrogen alone can cause flower and fruit drop.

In humans there is more to health than a few amino acids and vitamins. The importance of minerals is almost completely neglected. So it is with plants.

Look up rock dust on the Internet and learn what it doesfor gardeners and farmers around the world.

This also applies to those of you who have very unhapply looking banana plants growing in the super-poor soils of the subdivisions of Florida and tropical America.

If you want success, follow the rock dust reasoning and instructions. It is simple enough and to the point.

Alternatively, if fussing and fidgeting is more important, follow what currently passes for orthodox scientific dogma.

So it was not too much or too little H2O Not surprising.

Some of the best peaches and apricots to be found are grown on small, peasant farms in the Urals. These farmers hardly have two kopeks to rub together, much less enough of them to buy a hose or irrigagtion system. They depend for water in the rain from the heavens and have no control over how often this happens.

May I suggest you too read about rock dust so you can avoid the toxic plant sprays pushed by the chemical monopolies?

I can hear a small rumble in the background now, "Not everything on the Interent is right, fact, or true." Absolutely. But in this case, you cannot find a contradiction from Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, their allies, lackies or hired character assassins So there has got to be some truth in it.

Christian makes a good point that plants feed on inorganic minerals -- not organic plant material.

Rock dust is a by-product of rock crushers at quarries. They give it away for free. The minerals present in the rock dust typically take years to break down before they are available to plants. Bags of rock dust are sold on the internet for ridiculously high prices.

You can buy water soluble minerals that have been normalized for plant uptake and use. The plants uptake the minerals almost immediately. The minerals all come from natural sources -- typically dry lake beds. The price per pound is typically far less than rock dust. If you buy a "complete" water soluble fertilizer the minerals are already present.

Richard,
Would this be too much water? I recently watered the tree a little longer then I wanted to and it started to drop leafs. Then again it is also that time of year and it is making new buds.

Default Re: Peach Tree

i realize that i am taking the risk of sounding like Captain Obvious
but do you change the place where you grow it every year?
Every plant takes the minerals it needs ,
and the soil may be exhausted after the previous year.
good luck with your tree
