: I inherited a peach tree when we bought our new house and I know precious little about them. It had been cut down but managed to produce a peach last year (albeit somewhat green and about an inch in diameter). My wife has since slaughtered the trunk and cut it down to about 6 inches high (1.5 in diameter) so she could install a washing line. It has now sprouted out from the base of the trunk, so I would like some advice on whether I can take a cutting from what is left so I can transplant it to a safer area of the garden.
: Where should I cut? What do I do with the cutting, and where is the best place to put it?

Hi Fanatic,
It sure sounds like your little tree really WANTS to live. So, read this conversation, especially 'John NY'.

Best of luck,

PS. I just love peach pie, so let me know when it's ready. :>)
