Growing Avocado Trees

About a year ago I bought two avocado trees from a nursery. They are 1.5 metres tall. We live near the beach so the soil is sandy, but I have fertilised and mulched them. One is OK, but it has heaps of flower buds at the top. Do I remove these? The 2nd one has struggled from the beginning, now it has lost its leaves, but has the buds at the top, like flower buds? What can I do to help it?

Avocado trees need lots of water so be sure and give them a drink daily. Also need a lot of space to grow, make sure the roots are really deep.

They do not like a lot of sunshine or hot weather.

The flower buds are natural, this is where the fruit will come from, leave then to produce on their own.

Flowering buds are a good thing. Once the flower opens, fruit sets soon thereafter.

Sounds like they are doing good.

  • They need lots of sun and should be well drained.
  • Keep soil moist never wet.
  • Apply mulch about twice a year.
  • Use nitrogen fertilizer in autumn or winter.
  • Prune only after you get fruit.
