NECTERINES


Thought we’d try our hand at growing some Necterines this year so bought a single tree from the local Nursery. After a shaky start it’s been repsonding quite well. Initially we put it in the Polytunnel but after a couple of weeks the leaves started to turn pale and drop off. The blossom was fantastic but as it looked so sick we didn’t hold out much hope, then I read an article that suggested nectarines thrive in the South outside in a sheltered spot. So we moved it out alongside the poly and I’m pleased to say it started to respond and 4 weeks later it’s looking a lot healthier as you can see.
