How are peaches grown from seed?
The peach seed or pit can be planted straight into the soil in the fall. In a mixture of organic soil and compost, plant your peach pit three to four inches deep. Cover the seed with one to two inches of mulch to protect it from harsh winter weather. Maintaining a wet, but not drenched, soil, water the seed while avoiding over-watering. Hopefully, you will have a sprout by springtime!
