So I have been starting a bunch of trees from seeds.
Last year I started several apples, and pears and they are doing good. about 28 inches high.
This spring I got two peach pits to sprout, and I put them both on the top of two different swales, so that is one difference.
One of them was planted with sun flowers near it giving it some shade, which i thought a young tree might like.
the other one was getting full sun, and was growing through a mass of sweet potato vines.
Not only did the peach tree near the vines out grow the other peach by probably 24+ inches and several branches, this peach tree from pit out grow all of my other seedlings from apples and pears that were two years old.
SO my question is, do peach trees just grow fast, and the other seedling is a weakling? or do you think the vines really provide it that much more energy.
