Avocado tree advice

    2 responses

Trish Jamieson starts with ...
I live an hour west of Brisbane and have black clay soil. A few years ago I bought one of your secondos after digging down about 3 feet and the size of a dining table to prepare for it. I filled the hole with garden soil, cow poo etc. I think it was too windy and it was in full sun, by the time I erected a shadecloth wind shelter it was too late. About a year ago I bought a Hass & Shepherd which I promptly put into 90 litre pots. They’re doing well in a partially shaded spot with a tank blocking the wind from the west. Question : Is it okay to leave them in the pots. They aren’t dwarf trees. If I dig some large holes & put gravel down the bottom + shadecloth around them, would it be okay to transplant them. If so, when should I do it. Cheers Trish.

Some people are growing avocados still in their pots but in a raised mound so that the upper part still drains well - organic material/compost/soil heaped around them which apparently works
