Dwarf peach trees, which can be grown from a number of full-sized species, including bonanza peach trees, are small versions of the larger adult tree. Caring for dwarf peach trees properly ensures their survival.
In order to survive and produce blossoms, dwarf peach trees need direct sunlight throughout most of the day, or around six hours of sunlight. This can be supplemented with a grow lamp if the patio or porch is shaded.
Pruning is one of the best ways to keep a dwarf peach tree healthy when growing it on a patio. Removing dead, broken or diseased branches and trimming the tree prevents it from getting diseases and keeps it looking attractive and neat.
Growing a dwarf peach tree in a container requires the right soil and conditions for successful growth. Dwarf peach trees grow best in a moist and loamy, sandy soil, but they can also grow in soil with a slight clay content.
