So, as far as we understood, there is an adult peach in the summer cottage. Our reader claims that it interferes, as it is located exactly at the place where, according to the landscape design plan of the summer cottage area, there should be a recreation area.

But there is an additional list of problems:

  • Peach adult, tree growth over 2 meters;
  • Peach variety unknown;
  • The tree fell ill with curl, but was successfully cured;
  • Fruits on a tree are not of the best quality after an illness;
  • Move the peach to another place is required in the middle of summer;
  • In addition, it is necessary to transplant gooseberries, currants, hydrangeas in the same period. All this must be done without prejudice to plants, which is natural.

So, let's try to answer the question, as the specialists already had similar tasks.

Is there a way to transplant an adult peach

Yes, there is such a method. You can transplant a peach in the autumn, preferably even in late autumn. But we immediately warn that it will be very difficult to do this.

It will be necessary to dig a tree at least 1-1.2 m around, and to a depth of 80 cm. This will make it possible to pick a peach from a place with the least loss of the root system. But again, we recall that this must be done in the late autumn.

In general, the age of the peach should be clarified, since this tree is replanted only up to the age of 5-7 years. If you try to transplant a very mature tree, the results can be pretty disastrous.

Is it worth transplanting an adult peach

We will not dissuade you or impose our own opinion, but simply say that today there are many interesting solutions for the garden and recreation areas, and therefore, if you take advantage of our ideas, your own imagination or even the advice of individuals, you do not have to carry the tree around. There is no problem to build a recreation area around it, but it is up to you to decide.

How to transfer a peach transplant after an illness

It is very difficult to give an unambiguous answer, since we simply do not know many details. But we’re ready to immediately declare that kinkiness could damage the tree quite seriously, and even if there were no external signs, the tree could not recover completely after the disease, and this would only harm the transplant.

Do I need a peach on the plot

This is another solution to the problem, although not the most positive. Peach is not particularly young, suffered a disease, does not give the best quality fruit, interferes with the plot. The question arises: is it worth the time spent on it?

That is, if a peach of this quality, and even painful, maybe there is no point in protecting it? But here is the answer right away - you can try to transplant such a peach at any time convenient for you, and even if the tree does not survive, as we understand, you won’t be very sorry for it. And imagine that even without observing the conditions and rules, the tree will be accepted?

It is difficult to advise here, since it is not we who make the decision, but there can be quite a lot of answers to the question!

How to transplant a peach correctly

Based on the current situation, we can distinguish a certain sequence for transplanting an adult peach, from which we will have to proceed:

  • If there is no way to do this in the fall, try to choose a quiet and calm, non-hot day. Schedule a transplant in the evening, but free yourself a few hours in advance, because the work will need to be completed. A peach dug up and left until morning will not survive in the summer;
  • A few people will be needed for the transplant; to do this yourself is simply unrealistic. Dig a peach very carefully, trying not to chop all the roots in a row, but protecting the root system as much as possible;
  • Keep not only the roots, but also the soil on them. The earth lump in this case is the main indicator of the vitality of a tree in a new place;
  • You can come up with a bandage for the root system, and gently tie up the roots and soil while digging. Bags, a piece of tarpaulin, several times folded polyethylene - everything will do;
  • Pre-dig a hole under the peach in a new place. It should be the same parameters as the pit from which the peach is removed. It is advisable to finely grind the soil at the bottom, pour 200-300 g of ash and 100 g of slow mineral fertilizers, cover everything with a layer of nutrient soil or compost about 10-15 cm and spill abundantly with water;
  • The peach is placed neatly in the prepared pit. In this case, the bandage is removed with special attention so that the soil from the roots does not scatter, but remains in place;
  • Further planting occurs in the usual mode of work with fruit trees.

What problems can arise during transplantation?

Let's say right away, problems can occur both during and after transplantation:

  • The main one - the tree may not tolerate such a process;
  • Most likely, it will not be possible to save the root system, namely, to keep an earthen lump on it without special equipment, which will necessarily lead to subsequent diseases of the tree;
  • Transplanting a peach, it will be necessary to correctly trim the branches in order to equalize the ground part with the root system, its losses;
  • Pruning trees in the summer does not bode well;
  • Most likely, if the tree is already more than 7-8 years old, it will be sick for several years and fight for life if it survives after being moved to a new place;
  • The transfer work can take a lot of time, especially since it is very difficult to transfer a large earthen lump.

If you “dig” even deeper, then dozens of such issues may arise, and it will be extremely difficult to solve them. Therefore, we warn you in advance that this venture is far from the best.

Gooseberry, currant and hydrangea transplant

Here we also will not be able to especially please you, since these plants have their own rules for transplanting. The main one is the autumn transplant. In the summer, when the plant is almost at maximum activity, and it is very hot outside, you can easily lose up to 80-90% of transplanted plants, or even that.

What can we advise in this situation? There are two ways - to wait for the right period and do everything right, or just redraw your plan for the design of the summer cottage due to the inability to transfer peach, currant, gooseberry and other plants.
