Avocados are the most difficult fruit trees to grow. A good way to prepare them is to have a tractor tyre and build the soil up over the tractor tyre and then plant it on the top. Really good draining is very important. Their leaves are very tasty though the possums love them too.

They are an expensive mistake - what about cadmium levels in tyres - are they not poisonous ?
