The Highlights

    • A wonderful patio trained Peach Tree, ideal for a pot on your patio or balcony
    • A real feature piece in itself, with the pretty, delicate foliage adorned with bright red fruits
    • It produces wonderfully fresh tasting Nectarines, with sweet, juicy fruits
    • It carries good frost resistance, making it a reliable cropper even in the colder areas of the UK
    • Ready to harvest in August
    • Dwarf Option Very compact max size H1.5m x W1m, perfect for pots Patio trees are pruned and trained to be suitable for growing in pots, on patios. This means they will be fine with their growth being restricted and produce a productive little tree
    • Self fertile - will produce good crops without pollination
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Patio Tree in 4.5L Pot

Height on arrival:

Eventual height:

3m

Eventual spread:

1m

Tasting notes:

Fresh, juicy and one of the sweetest Nectarines you'll ever taste

Time to first crop:

2 Years
You may see your first Nectarines after 2 years but you should not expect to see substantial crops for another 2-3 years after that

Hardiness:

Hardy
May require some protection from very late frosts as this can damage the flowers. This won't cause lasting damage to the tree but will reduce the yield of fruit that year.

Pollination group:

NA
Pollination groups relate to the time of the year when a tree flowers. Trees that flower at the same time can pollinate each other, which helps produce fruit if not self fertile, and can still improve yields even if they are. Trees can usually pollinate a group either side of their own; i.e "2" can Pollinate 1, 2, and 3

Uses:

Eating, Making Jams

Rootstock:

Montclare
Peach varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. Montclare Peach trees tend to only reach 4m tall, perfect for smaller spaces or those afraid of stepladders. They can also be trained to a smaller size by pruning or restricting the roots, by keeping in a smaller pot

Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Shows some resistance to the main pests and diseases for Peaches. Has a good resistance to Peach leaf curl, although not full resistance so you should still keep an eye out for it and take the pruning steps below. You may see some damage from aphids and caterpillars, which can both be washed away with soapy water. Reduce the risk of bacterial canker by pruning to improve airflow and remove rotting organic matter nearby.MORE

Water in well when planting - read on for ongoing care

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly going forward, oly water in dry spells when needed. You should be able tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have a established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavy and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full sun

Full sun means receiving direct sun for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE

Prefers well drained, loamy soils

Will tolerate less than perfect conditions but may not fruit too well. Will struggle in poorly draining soil.MORE

No need to feed

Don't worry, this isn't a hungry plant so your food bills won't be going up!MORE

Some structural pruning required

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your Peach Tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease. Read more detail in our knowledge articles below.MORE
