Why do my peaches split and rot
I bought a peach tree which I planted in a very large pot.
I have sprayed it for peach leaf curl in Nov. and Feb. and it has prevented that and put on a lot of healthy growth. This year it was covered in fruit which I thinned out to 2 ins. apart. However, I now only have 4 fruits left as the rest have rotted, split and dropped off. I feed every fortnight and water daily. It occurs to me that I may be over-watering? The tree came from Italy and it occurs to me that perhaps it doesn't get much water in a natural environment?
