Old Avocado Water affected

    1 responses

Kit starts with ...
I have an old avocado ...planted in the 1960's so Im told. Has a whopping girth but in the last 2 days has displayed rapid browning of leaves and shrivelled fruit. Although we were not flood affected we had massive amounts of rain and the water table is very high. So i suspect root rot is taking hold. Any suggestions on how I can give the ol girl a fighting chance?

In my opinion, I'd go and get some Yates Antirot and spray as much of the tree canopy as you possibly can. If it's rootrot, or phytophthora, Yates antirot gets to the roots via the leaves and helps combat the problem. It's not a bad chemical, you find the same ingredient in Coca-cola.
