patio porch peach tree bonanza

Hello all. I have a dwarf peach tree bonanza that i planted in a large pot last spring. The tree did very well. I brought it in the house to overwinter in a cool room. The tree started to bud out in mid march and went into full bloom at the end of march. I can see small peaches starting to form. I removed the top three inches of soil and added some well aged mushroom compost. I also gave it a drink of deluted fish emultion. I still have it in the house as the temps aren't high enough to sustain it outside. My question is what do i fertilize with and how often do i do it? Is there a product out there for container fruit trees? Any help would be great.

It sounds like you've used a great organic fertilizer. You might want to add seaweed to that as well. There is even a fish emulsion mixed with seaweed.

I wouldn't recommend you overfertilize or you will risk fruit drop. If you repot it, check to see if the potting soil contains a slow release fertilizer.

You can search for more info on your tree with:
