Avocado Tree Losing Its Leaves

I just planted a new avocado tree in the soil and its leaves started to fall down like it's dying. I mixed the soil with 50gr of DAP fertilizer. I am worrying what should I do?

If you just planted it the tree probably went into a bit of shock. It should be fine once it gets used to its new environment

It is possible you have over fertilized your new tree as most recommend NO fertilizer when planted and very little at any time. Also, how the fertilizer was applied may not have been best for the new tree.
Are you talking about planting a grafted Avocado tree?

  • Its possible you could replant it away from the fertilizer but not sure how that would work.
  • Information from the CA avocado website:
  • We don't recommend fertilizing young and newly planted trees for at least the first year. Once the tree is established you can use any balanced citrus fertilizer on a yearly basis, just follow the directions on the label.

    Keep in mind, the rule of thumb with commercial fertilizers is less is more, so be conservative. Or if you are into organics like me you can use compost, coffee grounds, fish emulsion, etc.
  • Plant grafted seedlings with the graft under the soil, which is uncommon for other grafted trees. Stake young trees and keep them free of weeds while they are establishing."
  • It may be beneficial for you to read a few sections about growing your new tree - hope you can save it.
