Protect peaches from frost - how it works
Peaches like to be sunny. This can mean that they start blooming too early when the weather is nice. When frosty nights follow, the filigree flowers could freeze to death and that was it with a plentiful harvest of peaches this year. That's why you should be active and delay flowering. You can do this by stretching a linen cloth or garden fleece over the tree. However, this should only happen when the sun is shining. If the risk of night frosts is over, this measure is no longer necessary.
