Care Tip :

Avocados need to be planted in organically rich soil with excellent drainage. Water regularly and more frequently during the growing season of February-September. It is best to also fertilize your avocado February-September as well. Plant in full sun, on the south side of your property to protect the tree from extreme wind. Plant 8-10 feet away from buildings. Apply a frost cloth over your young tree during hard frost.
