Beautiful Pastel Peach
« on: April 16, 2017, 18:51:10 »
I acquired this gorgeous Peach last year.  It brought joy and then heartache when the flowers started to look sick and I discovered that the stem had rot at the base so I lost the flowers.  Cost me a mint so I wasn't well pleased I can assure you.  I know nothing about its breeding background just fell in love at first sight and had to have it by hook or by crook. :)  I will be watching it like a hawk this year

That's a  dream peach, Mary! Congratulatuions and commiseration. Since your horror story ends with the loss of the flowers, I take it that the plant is OK. Fngers crossed that it flowers again soon.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Leisl,Nick and Johan, must do some sleuthing and get some background info.  The plant is very robust thanks Nick, have re-potted and cleaned up all old leaves, will just have to keep an eagle eye on things.  Would a preventative spray of Copper Sulphate be a good idea ?

My mystery is looking very strong and healthy no sign of rot and it is pushing a bud so will keep a close eye on progress.
The grower thinks that the seed may be the result of crossing sdlngs from Anderson Peach.  Whatever, it is stunning. I am looking forward to seeing it flower (fingers crossed)

Hi Mary,
A real beauty in every respect, to have nearly lost it must have been heart breaking.
It goes to show the excitement of expectation and the feeling of loss go hand in hand to make this a wonderful hobby or business.
This is what drives us to strive for perfection and allows us to have a feeling only equaled by parenthood at birth.
Enjoy each and everyone that flowers.
Regards,

Just be nice to the person next to you, and smile, it does'nt cost a cent.
