Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 8 - 10' apart to ensure room for growth.

I live in Zone 7, should lime sulphur oil be applied to Belle of GA and Contender peaches? If so, when?
PEACHgardener on Sep 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Lime sulphur is a good preventive measure - apply as you would a dormant oil, before growth begins in late winter.
