#ProPlantTips for Care
Pink Halo does best when the tree is planted in full sun. Make sure the location has good air circulation to keep cold air from settling on the spring blooms. Morning sun is the drying sun, and will help the overnight dew vanish from the foliage.
Peaches grow well in well-drained, and even sandy soil. While it is adapted to a wide range of soil types and climates within USDA zones 6-9, the soil must be well-drained.
If you have heavy clay soil, or soil that doesn't drain well, plant in a raised bed, or create a mound of soil heaped 12 - 18 inches tall by 3 feet wide. You'll plant directly into that mound to improve the drainage away from the crown of the root.
Water regularly, especially during fruit production. Give a thick layer of mulch over the top of the roots. Spread to three inches thick and three feet outside the canopy.
Fruiting plants need sun and air movement. Prune in late winter to open up the canopy.
Prune the trees in summer for size control to keep it low for easier harvest. Thin the young fruit set early in the season. This will help ensure that the mature fruit reach a nice size for harvest.
Make a place in your yard for this sweet selection, and you'll be so pleased with it. Quantities are limited, so order your Pink Halo Peach tree today!
