Growing avocado in melbourne - Thanks, that's good encouragement :) All of the leaves off my Gwen tree have been eaten off while I was away for a few days. Anybody know what would have eaten it? The trunk is only about 2 centimetres thick; would a possum be able to climb it? Tha..3705 days 4hrs

Avocado root rot - Okay, just got back from the long weekend and the Gwen is looking pretty sad. The outsides of the leaves are brown as if burnt but it hasn't been hot/sunny at all. It has got some nice new growth though. Will take some photos tomorrow... Jon..3753 days 0hrs
