    Hi Jade image telll us a bit more about your avocado - where does it live and what sort of compost is it in?

  • It's in a large pot. We used potting soil. It's sitting on the east side of the house to get the eastern sun but not the west. Every once in a while I feed it viggo plant feed that's made for avacado treEs

    How big is the pot and how big is the tree?  How often is it watered?

  • It's a hal barrel, and I water it every couple days if I notice the soil is dry.

    And how big is the tree?  If it's in a half-barrel do I take it that it's outside?  Whereabouts do you live?
