  • Planting Avocado Tree

    Created by Scott Rubenstein on

    Hello! I’ve had an Avocado seed hanging in a cup of water since September. It’s growing nicely and has a really great root structure. I’ve never done anything like this before and thought it would be fun. But, I’m not sure where to go from here. I want to get some organic soil and move it outside. Can you please recommend some of your products that you think would work for what I’m doing? Thanks!

    Hello Scott!

    I’m glad to hear that your avocado is coming along well! I would suggest that you transfer it into a pot with some quality organic potting soil and mix a bit of sand in with it to give it a little extra drainage. That will help to prevent root rot which seems to be a common problem with avocado trees.

    I have also seen a few resources that suggest not to fertilize for the first year, but if you would like to give it some fertilizer before then, add a bit of Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer if it seems to be lacking. Remember to get a good watering schedule down so as to avoid any problems and ensure that your tree will flourish.

    I hope this helps!
