Generalities Avocado
This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 18 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Avocado develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. The Avocado develops like a tree. Fertilization Avocado
As the beautiful season arrives letís enrich our soil near our fruit plants, planting a good quantity of mature organic fertilizer, or some granular slow release fertilizer or earthworm humus. Exposure AvocadoSole pieno
The Avocado usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones. For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Avocado in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.Young specimens, which have been planted for little time, usually are ensured by a stake, which keeps the stem erect; during the winter letís protect the young plants covering the area near the roots with dry leaves or straw. Watering AvocadoTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks . To avoid that the watering and fertilizing for our fruit plants get absorbed by other plants, we suggest to clean the soil from the infesting plants, periodically, even by simply using a hoe. Treatments Avocado
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Soil Avocado
These trees favour a soft and deep, very well drained soil.
