Nectarine Trees

Peaches and nectarines depend on a sheltered, south facing position free from frost pockets, otherwise, the early spring blossom might be damaged. A popular method is to train them against a south-facing wall which holds the day’s heat through the night, and if cold spring days appear a covering of horticultural fleece will protect the tender blossoms.

There's a guide to growing nectarines along with a 4 page article by Carol Klein on the site here: Grow Your Own Peaches and Nectarines
