If you don't live in a warmer winter climate then it might be best to plant your avocado tree in a pot that can be moved inside during the winter.

Transplanted Avocado Tree Is Dying
About a month ago I moved my 4 year old avocado tree because there wasn't enough space for it to grow. It was thriving. It was moved from the north to the south side of the house. It had been in the shade of a large tree with direct sun in the morning and late afternoon. Now it has sun from mid-morning until dusk.
Indoor Avocado Tree Losing Leaves
I have grown my avocado tree from a seed and never pruned it. As new leaves sprout the existing leaves fall off. I still keep the tree indoors. What could I do to prevent the the leaves falling off.
Avocado Tree Never Fruits
My avocado tree, planted in the yard 20 years ago, has never fruited or even had blossoms. Last year it had blossoms, but they didn't turn into fruit. The tree we had cut down about 20 years ago would produce over 400 avocados every year. This tree is a seed from that tree.
Growing an Avocado Tree from a Pit
My avocado pit grew to 12 in. I cut it back midway up the stem. It is now almost 2 ft high again with four leaves and two more coming. All at the top. It also has, near the bottom, small white bulbous growths numbering five. The stem is very thin but strong. How do I get the plant to get a thicker stem with leave?
Planting an Avocado Tree Outside
My avocado tree has grown to about 3 1/2 feet from the pit. I have had it in the house in a window since starting it, probably 2 or 3 years ago. I want to move it outside either in a larger pot or in the ground. I am in zone 7 or 8 in North Carolina. Can it survive being out doors?
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?
