A piece in paper stated because of lack off cold enough winter. They had to use something to wake up peach trees to make them bear. Does any know to what it is refering to and also if this wake up works was wondering if it would work on apples also?

RE: Wake up peach trees

Dormex is what commercial growers use on large blocks of one variety. I doubt you will find it for sale in small quantities for a home owner. Also timing is paramount. Every variety will need spraying at a different time. You need to know exactly how much chilling you've accumulated and how much you are short. On top of that my impression is that the stuff is dangerous.

In short, forget about it if you have a mixed variety home orchard.
