Make sure the root ball is well-moistened before planting your Dwarf Nectarine Tree by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in good, loose, nutritious soil. Plant the Dwarf Nectarine Tree at the appropriate depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be slightly below ground level. Fill the hole and press firmly in. Water immediately after planting. The Dwarf Nectarine Tree grows best planted in complete sunshine.
Planting a Dwarf Nectarine Tree
Dwarf Nectarine Tree will thrivel in a large container. It takes up little space but produces nice big fruit. Plant the Dwarf Nectarine Tree in a sheltered, sunny area. You can create a 'mini-orchard' by planting the Dwarf Nectarine, Peach, Apricot and Patio Apple trees in containers and grouping them all together on your patio or decking.
The Dwarf Nectarine Tree is easy to grow. Water it regularly. Are you growing your Dwarf Nectarine Tree in a container? Then never let the root ball dry out! Early in the year, we recommend some mixed organic fertilizer. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree. The nectarines will ripen, depending on the weather, between August and September. If you leave some nectarines on the tree to ripen for longer, they will get even sweeter. To protect against the birds getting to the fruit first we advise netting over the tree. The Dwarf Nectarine Tree doesn't need pruning.
Nectarine is a type of peach. Peaches have hairy peel while nectarines have completely smooth peel. The yellow flesh is delicious, sweet and juicy. Fragile blossom will appear in early spring which is pollinated by insects and then the nectarines develop.
