Prior to planting a new peach tree it’s important to remove dead leaves, twigs, limbs, and other debris like rocks from the foundation. The roots of peach trees need to be watered for up to 12 hours before planting the tree. First start by digging a hole that can successfully fit the roots of the tree. The roots will naturally grow in different directions over time so you need them to have sufficient space for growth.
