These are plants of
the East, able to survive a cold winter but requiring
a long, dry summer to ripen the fruit and the
wood, without which they will bear little fruit
the following year. In Britain, peaches may be
grown outdoors in East Anglia, which is the ideal
climate for them. Otherwise, grow them in the
southern parts of England and Ireland, especially
on a warm wall or at the back of a lean-to greenhouse.
Apricots grow better in the west, peaches and
nectarines in the dryer east.
