Hi Tedy,

As far as I know, the Wurtz would be best to grow in a pot in Brissy mate. Been a dwarf, it'll only grow 3 metres max. Whereas the Hass can get as big as 10 metres.

Can I ask why you are choosing to grow in pot only? Is it space issues or fighting the clay grounds of Brissy??

Cool.

Hi Cool
Thanks for the advice, Yes space is my problem. I only have 2.5 meters on the side of my house and I understand that it’s not good to plant avocado tree too close to the house as avocado has aggressive root system. Please give your ideas on this. Thanks , Tedy

Hey Ted,

Personally i would go ahead and plant in the ground. Even with the aggressive root system, it shouldn't affect anything structurally. Another thing many Brissy folks do is plant avos on mounds to help against the clay soils. This should also help with your rooting concerns as some of the root mass will be above ground. There should be a Geoff Lawton video about this somewhere on youtube that will help you out.

Let us know what you decide and how it goes.

Cool.
