Hi ATP members!

I have a young dwarf peach tree that was given to me at the end of last summer. It's already bloomed and is getting some leaves. I want to put it in the ground, but I don't know whether it's the right time of the year. Spring seems to be the time to transplant, but I'm unsure as it has already bloomed. Any advise out there from peach tree owners? I have no experience with fruit trees and as it has special meaning to me, I'd don't want to take any chances in transplanting it at the wrong time.

It's in a very large container and will survive another year as it is, or at least I believe it will.

Thank you for any input!

Thank You!

You are correct. It is not a good idea to transplant a fruiting tree. However since it is potted, IF you can transplant it with the rootball intact you wll should not upset it too much, It also depends on whether it is a dwarf or one of the mini- varieties designed for container growing. I personally get the best results transplanting dormant shrubs and trees.
