Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Update: 306 days 20hrs

Comments: -  Small size. Photo taken a year after planting- it has grown alot and definitely changed shape. It is a bit weepy compared to others. I picked the flowers off this year, maybe next year I will leave them on. I have an earth bag underneath it that drip waterers it most of the time and it seems happy.
