Hass avocado tree

    5 responses

Kam starts with ...
Hi
Would someone be able to tell me if I dwaf my Hass avocado tree will it stop the tree from growing vigorous roots.
When I bought the tree I was going to put it into a 160 ltr pot but found out it should have gone into the ground. If I can make the tree small it can remain in the ground.

Hi Kam,

Yes, you can keep the tree small in ground by:
1. Restrict the root growth (it is a bit tricky job as may ended up holding water caused root rot if you are not experienced) or
2. Prune the tree each year (this is more common). Remember Hass is a big tree not like Lamb Hass. Cheers

I don't really understand the question. How were you thinking of dwarfing it? Pruning? Doubt if you would get much fruit.

You can use a Bonsai bag to keep the tree small, as it stops the roots from growing beyond a certain point. They were available from Daleys, not sure if they still stock them. I have a mandarin in a 20l Bonsai bag, loaded with fruit, that I have had for several years. It is around 1m tall.

You can read 'Trees in bags' somewhere on this site.

Hi Julie
Thank you very much for your reply. A friend of mine had heard about dwarfing trees but not done it before and he asked me to find out how I could do it for my avocado tree. I have a 160 litre pot. Perhaps I can use it.

I think your mandarin tree is very cute only 1 m tall with lots of fruits. Would you like to share a picture of it?

Thank you again.

Hi David01
Thank you very much for your reply. My avocado tree is too close to my house. Best thing is to put it in a pot. I have put in a star fruit tree in the ground instead. I am more comfortable this way. This Hass avocado tree is growing very tall in less than a year.

Thank you again for helping.
