Avocado

    4 responses

Tedy Philip starts with ...
My first avocado plant died because I didn’t plant it properly. Then I did some research and got all the information on planting properly. I planted my second plant with all the possible care and procedure. Still no luck and plant stands still and no growth but signs of stress. I cut the trunk at half way down and surprisingly few days later new buds from all over the trunk.
Now I have 4 healthy buds. Should I keep them all or keep only the reduce to the healthiest one bud.
Please advise
Thanks and best regards Tedy Brisbane

Hi Tedy Philip,

Just leave it as it is for now but you need to protect a young Avocado as it does not like weather more than 25C or less than 10C and ensure soil not too wet or dry. No fertilizer until the plant establish. Cheers

Is that lawn or mulch around the tree? What type of soil do you have there?
It should be able to handle your weather where you are as I plant them all year round here - but I do put a shade cloth teepee over the new summer plantings - with the shade cloth arranged so that it shades the tree from the hot afternoon sun - like in this pic (the Fuerte out grew it here tho!) How often do you water it?
(I would keep all the buds for the time being - it's going to need them, to get going again)

Hi Teddy Philip,

there are few important points I forget to tell you that Avocado does not like the clay below as it holds water during wet season, usually people build up the garden bed 1m by 1m by 0.5m high to prevent root rot. Soil PH prefers 5.5 to 6 and no weeds or any veggies nearby as Avo has a shallow roots system. Few links attached will give you more info how to grow Avo. Cheers
