Peach ‘Pink Peachy’ is a dwarf peach that makes a charming ornamental tree as well as bearing edible fruits. In April, it bears a profusion of pink blossom held in dense clusters that not only delivers spring impact but offers a banquet to hungry pollinators emerging from winter hibernation. Small, light yellow fruits with red blotches become sweet and fully mature in August/September. It makes a neat specimen for a large container on a balcony or terrace and its petite size also suits small garden borders. Self-fertile, it doesn’t require a pollination partner. Peach ‘Pink Peachy’ is slow-growing and requires only minimal pruning – simply pinch out the new shoot tips in spring to keep the tree small and bushy. Height: 1.5m (4.9ft). Spread: 75cm (2.4ft).

Plant peach trees in rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. A south facing position is preferable to provide protection from damaging frosts. If planting into containers, the diameter of the container should be at least 50cm (20in) - use John Innes no.3 compost. Prior to planting in the open ground, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. If the tree is to be bush trained then drive a stake into the ground prior to planting. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. For wall trained peaches attach support wires to the wall prior to planting. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake or support wires, and water well.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water peach trees regularly during particularly dry periods. When fruits are walnut sized they should be thinned to one fruit per cluster, at a spacing of 22cm (9") apart.

When pruning peach trees it is important to avoid winter pruning as this leaves them prone to silver leaf disease. This dwarf peach is slow-growing and requires only minimal pruning. To maintain a compact, bushy tree pinch the tops from the new shoots with your thumb and forefinger in the spring. Remove any damaged, badly placed or diseased wood.
