Care 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. Feed 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. Temperatures AvocadoSole pieno
During the spring the The Avocado can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric. For a balanced development of the The Avocado it is advisable to locate it 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. Irrigation AvocadoTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. 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. Adversity 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. Substrate Avocado
These trees favour a soft and deep, very well drained soil.
