Peach blossom cutting propagation 

In spring, hard twig is used for cutting, and soft twig is used in plum rain season. Cuttings must grow strong and substantial. In order to prevent disease infection and promote rooting, the lower end of the cuttings should be cut with 600-1200 times solution of 50% carbendazim fungicide and quickly dip in indolebutyric acid 750-4500mg/L. The spacing of the cuttings was 4cm×30cm, and the cutting depth should be 2/3 of the length of the cuttings.

Peach blossom grafting propagation

The survival rate of branch grafting and bud grafting was higher than that of seedling (stock) of peach or peach.

Grafting: Occurs when buds have begun to sprout in March. Commonly used cutting, rootstock with one or two years of live seedlings had better.

Bud grafting: In July and August, usually "d" shaped grafting. Rootstock with a full annual seedling is better.

Peach blossom sowing propagation

The flowering period of peach is From March to April, and the fruit ripening period is from June to August. Harvest the ripe fruit, pile it up and mash it, remove the flesh, dry it and collect the pure seedling seeds for autumn sowing. Before sowing, soak the seed for 5-7 days. Autumn sower germination early next year, which has high seedling rate, rapid growth and strong. Next spring sowing seed, seedlings seeds need to store more than 120 days of wet sand. Drill is adopted, the width is 10 cm, the depth is 1-2 cm, after seeding, cover soil is 6 cm.Sow children 25-30 kg per 667 square meters. Seedlings 3 cm tall, time seedlings, seedlings, 20-25 cm apart.
