Product Description

This new garden peach tree really has it all, giving interest from early spring through to autumn and with the promise of a crop of juicy peaches! 

In early spring the blossom appears and the bright pink saucer shaped blooms which are produced in abundance give a display every bit as good as the best ornamental cherries! It also acts as a magnet for bees and other friendly insects and beneficial pollinators. 

As the blossom fades the foliage appears - each elongated slender leaf taking on a bronzy hue as it unfolds offering a lovely contrast to the more familair greens in the garden.

Over the summer the fruits enlarge and ripen til they're ready to pick in late August. Peaches are deep red when ripe and with sweet yellow flesh.

For best results grow in a large pot in a sunny spot in the garden - it's ideal spot perhaps being against a south facing wall.

Whilst Rubira is fully hardy in the UK climate i'ts best protected from rain during the winter months as this helps avoid leaf diseases. If possible move under cover such as a porch  or better still a greenhouse. Alternative cover with a  tent fashioned from garden polythene. 

This spectaular tree with delicious fruit is worth the effort!

Plant Information

Top Tips

For bigger crops, use an artist's soft paintbrush moving from flower to flower to increase pollination
Try and keep the canopy dry each spring as the leaves emerge, to avoid Leaf Curl

Care Guide

  • Patio peaches can be grown in large containers filled with soil-based John Innes No 3 compost.
  • In February each year, feed with a balanced fertiliser, and repot every couple of years.
  • Naturally dwarf, these patio peaches need little or no pruning to keep their compact shape.
  • Protect the blossom from frost and, although self-fertile, using a dry small artists paintbrush to brush pollen from flower to flower will increase fruit set.
  • When fruit appears, it will need thinning. Remove poorly placed, small or misshapen fruits when they are about the width of your little finger nail. With peaches aim to have a fruit every 15cm (6in).
  • Water container-grown trees almost every day during the growing season and give them a high potash liquid feed every couple of weeks. Avoid excessive or irregular watering when fruit is ripening to prevent the skin splitting.As the fruit develops it may need protection from birds and squirrels.

Nice tree, in leaf when delivered but in a very small pot for it's size. Will take some TLC but should be OK
