I planted the tree about 10 years ago and I think it would die if I tried to replant it. It was placed quite close (too close! about 8 feet) away from a privet hedge and so, naturaly, I guess, grew away from there in an effort to get more light. Its now about 15-20 ft high, so light competition isnt an issue. First few years it only had about 6 fruits a year - then last year it had about 100 of the most fantastic tasting fruit. So I dont want to lose it!It was staked originally, but as it grew the bindings stretched and dropped away. It is still very healthy, but I'm not sure if trees such as peaches routinely grow at weird angles. I think I will try and restake it (though the trunk is pretty thick). I had also been thinking of fashioning some sort of cradle and propping it up with that (e.g, and most simply, knocking the top bar off the handlle of an old spade, putting some rubber or cloth in the groove and placing it for support).
Or maybe I should just try and make it a tourist attraction - akin to the the Leaning Tower of Pisa!
