Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cold Hardy Avocado - Gift

Cold Hardy Avocado - Gift Planting Diretions Place your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. If your tree is potted or kept indoors place it by a window that gets at least six hours of sunlight a day. Cold Hardy Avocado Trees will adapt to many different soil types, even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining.

Don't over water your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree. Avocado Trees like it when their roots are dry. In between waterings take a handful of soil, if the soil is moist don't give your tree any water. If the soil is dry and crumbly, give your tree a deep watering. Mist the leaves with a spray bottle to create a humid environment for your tree.

After a year of growth fertilize your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree four times a year with a well balanced citrus fertilizer. Leaves often drop between blooming cycles. Your Avocados won't be ready to be picked until their skin fully turns a dark purple-black color. Once you harvest your Avocados they will take between five to seven days to ripen. When they're soft to the touch they're ready to be eaten.

What type of firtelizer should i used on the cold hardy and hess avocado i bought from Fast Growing trees few months ago?
Azad A on Aug 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I spread some regular compost around the tree, but not touching the trunk. keep grass away from the trunk of the tree as well. It should be happy with that. From what I hear, avocados don't require a lot of fertilizer. Make sure the tree has good drainage if you have it in the ground. I planted mine in the ground and covered it up during the cold days and nights. Mine is only one year old, so I don't have any fruit yet. Next year I a sure I will have some. Good Luck.
