What's up with my dwarf peach

Posted by averil 8b (My Page) on

Hi folks, I would appreciate any advice. I have a dwarf peach in a container. It was bought last year and over wintered in the greenhouse, where it remains. It has loads of new growth, and 3 flowers, one of which has dropped off :(. I have noticed today it is dropping leaves. I don't think it is disease because the leaves are still new and green when they drop. I dont know if I may have overwatered. I water every ten days or so but it is not bone dry between waterings. Should it be really dry? If so is there anything I need to do? Thanks again for any help. I am in Uk so temps are not high

I was wondering why it was kept in the greenhouse during the winter. Also, did it go completely dormant and recently leaf out?

Hi fire duck I'm in Uk so thought it maybe best to protect over its first winter. The greenhouse is not heated. It went dormant and leafed about 3-4 weeks ago
