    New Trees, just some questions

    Hi, this is my first post here...

    I recently got some trees, semi dwarf elberta peach, white and pink dogwood. The pink dogwood trees are starting to leaf out now, but the others are more of sticks than anything else.

    They were all bare root plants shipped from a nursery. I have been watching for about a week now, but no new buds are swelling on any of the trees except for the pink dogwoods.

    It looks like the peach trees had buds this year, but they died either in shipping or before they were sent. All the trees are still green and alive. I was just wondering about how long it would be before the trees start to bud out again. Thanks in advance,

    Hi Treeguy,

    If you are in Alaska it might take another month before you see new growth. If you are in Florida, you should see new growth in a week or so. If there is still green then there is still life. Sometimes the trees will concentrate on root development before buds. Of course this all depends on proper watering, planting at proper depth and proper mulching. Did you get directions about those when you received your trees? If not, I can get you links.

    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

    RE: New Trees, just some questions

    Thanks for the info. I actually live in West TN. There were not any instructions included, but my brother has a degree in horticulture/landscape management (or something like that anyway), and he helped me get everything planted. Im sure they were planted correctly, and mulched correctly. They get watered about every 3-4 days, and it has been raining A LOT since we planted them. All the dogwoods look like they have new growth. The pinks already have lots of new leaves and stems, but the white's buds are just now starting to open. The peach trees are what Im really worried about. They just look like sticks. They were grafted to rootstock last year I think, and it looks like the tree had buds this year, but died. I know if they were dormant, peach trees have to have so many days of warm weather before they will bud, so Im hoping thats it. The trees still bend like they are green, but the bark is a little tough, and I dont want to rip off a chunck trying to scratch it. Do you think it will just take another week or 2? Anyone had any experience with new peach trees like this? Thanks!
