Avocado Tree Care

Avocados are a great source of nutrients, including vitamins B, C, E and K, and are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats. An avocado-rich diet can lower cholesterol levels and might have other health benefits too. Of course they’re also tasty and can be used in a wide range of recipes. They aren’t cheap though, so having your own avocados growing in the garden is a tempting idea. The good news is that if you have the right climate it’s possible to do exactly that. With a little bit of planning, and some care and attention, you can be picking your first home-grown avocados in a few years.

It’s important to pick the right spot for your avocado trees – and keep in mind that if you want fruit you’ll need to plant more than one, so they can cross-pollinate. The main thing to remember when planting is that avocados are a sub-tropical species and don’t like cold weather, so if you have frosty winters they’re unlikely to thrive. If you live in USDA hardiness zones 9 or 10, though, you should be able to grow them successfully, and Mexican or Guatemalan varieties can survive an occasional light frost.
