My peach tree has blooms on it now. What must I do to prevent this from occurring? If there is nothing I guess I'll replace it with another . I'm in the tidewater area,thanks

Practically there isn't much you can do to delay blooming of peach trees. But early blooming doesn't necessarily mean that your crop will freeze out and will probably result in earlier ripening of surviving fruit. Peach trees have about 10 times the amount of flowers that they need to support a full crop. Surviving fruit should be thinned to no closer than 8 inches apart when they are an inch in diameter (or sooner if it looks like plenty of them are making fruit.

Good luck!
