Avocado leaves going brown - Thanks too Jakfruit, I will have to wait until I go into the big smoke, but definitely going to add a bit of gypsum. I have sprinkled some coffee grounds around the drip line since I realize my soil PH is a bit higher than reccomended - normally closer t..1686 days 11hrs
Avocado leaves going brown - thank you for that Markmelb, I didnt think it looked that healthy at the beginning, but always like to feel I can bring plants back from the brink :) It looks as though I should add a little gypsum. ..1686 days 11hrs
Avocado leaves going brown - I have been reading through this forum, and havent found an identical problem to mine. Gypsum seems to be reccomended quite often. I have sandy soil so I thought gypsum was only added to clay soils. This is a grafted dwarf avocado, and looked like this w..1692 days 13hrs

Lychee - Bosworth 3 2/10

Africanaussie's Edible Fruits
Update: 1337 days 11hrs

Planted: 2008

Water Given in: Summer

Pruned By: 50% in After Fruiting

Question: When we purchased the property there was a mature lychee in the backyard.  There have been problems with erinose mite.  The last time it fruited, we were able to pick from the lower branches, but the upper ones were attacked by bats.  We got an arborist to prune the tree and I wanted the top lopped off, but he pruned it back into a rounded shape.  He said lopping the top would killl the tree.  It has now leafed out and fruited with all the fruit out of reach.  We have bats at night and rainbow lorikeets during the day. My poor hubby picks buckets of fallen fruit which I have been composting.  I now think this might be a bad idea as we seem to have flies.  They are bigger than the little flies you get when over ripe fruit sits on the counter.  They actually look like little cockroaches - brown with a black stripe. 2cm long.  We live in Mossman Queensland.  I would appreciate any advice on where to go from here.  The back garden is awful at the moment with all these little flies, and we have a fruit tree that we get no fruit from..

TRIED BUT DIED

Avocado - Hass (A) (Grafted)

Africanaussie's Edible Fruits
Update: 1337 days 11hrs

Comments: - I have a small veggie garden and want to grow a food forest so that the trees provide shade.  I bought this at the markets from Helgas nursey, leaves have gone yellow and fallen off.  I see that it likes more acid soil, so am going to pick up some coffee grounds.  Our wet season is slow in coming so it has been very dry.
