Why Bonanza Peach Trees?
You’ll get visual interest and fresh, juicy fruit…and fast, in one compact package. The Bonanza Peach Tree is known for its abundance of full-sized, fast-growing peaches, sweet and filled with refreshing flavor.
It’s a versatile tree with tons of benefits. Large enough to grow bushels of delicious peaches but still well-suited to nearly any location in your landscape, it’s the picture of adaptability. Whether it’s planted in a container on your porch or patio or placed in your favorite location among other fruit trees in your yard, the Bonanza Peach is a staple that thrives without much maintenance.
Planting & Care
Living up to its name, the Bonanza Patio Peach Tree is perfect for small gardens, on a deck, or in a container.
1. Planting: Plant your Bonanza Patio Peach Tree in well-drained soil in a location that receive full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day). Protect your tree from heavy winds by planting on the sunniest side of a building or your home.
When you’re ready to plant, dig the hole twice the size as the root ball and just a little shallower. Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Bonanza, place the tree, back fill the soil and apply water to settle. If you’re container-growing, be sure to select a pot with plenty of holes in the bottom, along with a pot size that’s twice the size of the plant’s shipped container.
2. Watering (in ground): Keep the soil around your Bonanza moist, but not over saturated. Watering once a week by leaving a hose at the base of the tree for a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the soil around the tree has dried, water the tree again. During times of extreme heat, your tree may need additional water.
For container-grown Bonanzas, stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water it slowly until you see water escaping the drainage holes and then stop.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your tree with a well-balanced fertilizer such as a 12-12-12 formula. Apply in spring before the tree pushes out new growth. Repeat this in the summer and fall seasons as well.
4. Pruning: Bonanza Trees should only be pruned while the plant is dormant without leaves. That is usually in winter or early spring before the leaf buds open up.
