Have I done everything right? Hi. As you might know I have a dwarf peach which bloomed well but hasn't yet came into full leaf. It also only got about four full hours of sunlight. It wasn't sheltered well so I decided to move from ground to a big pot on a south facing garage which gets about 12 full hours of sunlight and is warm and sheltered. It is a White facing garage so it should reflect heat on to my peach. I dug up my peach carefully and fortunitly it hadn't got established so came out easily. Put some pebbles at the bottom of the pot and filled with used compost, fresh compost and good quality top soil. Planted the each and covered with gravel. Fertilised it which counts for watering and left it to it's own devices. Looks really good now. The draining is excellent the water came out in a shallow line about two minutes after fertilising it. It should do really well. So have I done everything right and is there anything apart from protecting it from frost that i should know? Thanks.
