Re: Peach Trees growth crazy

Peaches are crazy growers and need to be pruned severely every year or two. Counterintuitive but it must be done. There are several on-line peach pruning sites. Pruning needs to be done in early spring before the sap begins to flow. The trees live longer and produce more by being pruned hard.
