Story Title: Avocado Trees

There is no better tree to plant in your garden than an avocado tree.

  • Tass 1 Trees has a great selection of avocado trees – if you’re in WA, check them out!
  • Avocado trees have very sensitive root systems, so you’ll want to manage the transplant shock. Make sure to plant into a hole with a lot of god compost around the outside.
  • Make sure to water your tree in thoroughly, and don’t use a fertiliser for a month after it has been planted.
  • Make sure to stake your tree and avoid planting it in a windy location.
  • With avocados costing $4 a fruit, buying your own tree is a valuable investment. After a couple of years, you’ll be harvesting more fruit than you’ll know what to do with.
