Nectarine trees grow well in USDA Growing Zones 5-10. Plant them in late winter to early spring in a site that gets full sun, but is protected from strong winds. The soil pH should be between 6.0 and 7.0. The ground must be free draining because you don’t want the roots sitting in soil that stays wet. It should hold moisture, but not be saturated. Mulch around the base of the tree, but don’t let the mulch touch the trunk. You don’t want to cause disease or other issues. Provide a new nectarine tree with two gallons of water each week. If it rains, the tree needs about an inch each week, so don’t provide any more if it gets sufficient rainfall.
