Does anyone have any experience growing avocado trees? When can I transplant the sapling into a different pot? And what kind of soil?
First: I don’t like avocados, I think they taste like wet chalk. Others in my family disagree and I’m sure some of you would as well, lol.
Second: My mother, has tired many times growing an avocado from the stone and has had no luck. Which just makes the next part ironic.
Third: I always find the rubbery stones in the compost and think I some how have gotten a bouncy ball in there, but then I think about it and realize they are avocado stones. This year while shifting and turning the compost to put into the garden for the growing season, I found a few of the rubbery balls and one had a root sticking out of it. So, I planted it into a pot, because I like growing things and I like plants. I stuck it in the greenhouse and waited for what might happen (that was May 27).
Forth: The stone cracked open and I had a little avocado peeking out at me.
Fifth: I have a nice looking little avocado sapling, that seems to be thriving well, but will have to be brought indoors for winter. Which is why I’m asking about what I need to do, I don’t want it to die when I bring it indoors. I’m excited and want to see it thrive and grow. I can’t get rosemary to live through the winter indoors, but the house plants seem to live just fine.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
