Check out these sites for some more info;
The 2" are putting on a small amount of fruit (pears and peaches) but the 1/2" ones are no where close
The mulch will be kept below the graft.

Yep. Right north of me is a huge peach growing area several large farms. We have special varieties that will do well with only 400 or less chill hrs. This past winter was warm but usually we have a cool winter...this isnt florida!!
High end commercial, multi-family and residential lawn care, irrigation (LI and BPAT), and landscaping.
