I have an avocado tree that was planted by someone else. I don't know what type of soil they used, I know that they grew it from a seed. What can I do to help it grow? I've been taking care of it for a year and it has not grown an inch, what can I do to help it grow faster?
What type of area is it planted in? It should be in the shade, for starters. Here is guide to growing an avocado tree:
My dad has planted an avocado tree but purchased from the nursery and it has grown. Not much, and uses a lot of water.
However, upon research it says if an avocado was grown from a seed, it could take anywhere from 5 to 13 years to mature!
