Ok, so I'm growing a peach tree in a fan against the south facing back of my greenhouse. (It is butted up against my summer house) It has lots of blossom, and is currently outside my bubblewrap 'tent', which I made to keep things that needed it frost-free. Now the tree is only in it's 2nd year of planting, should I not bother pollinating with a brush so it sends all it's effort into growing the shape I want? I'm tempted by the idea of fruit, but I want the tree to reach it's full size asap, the greenhouse is 10 foot wide by 12 foot, just so you have an idea of dimensions.
