Information on the Dwarf Patio Peach Tree

Save

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.

Lighting

  • 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

  • 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.

Soil

  • 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.
