How to fertilize avocado

Views: 104    

For fertilization, you can apply nitrogen fertilizer, which is a fertilizer with a higher number in front of the three numbers (e.g. 30:10:10) when you first plant it, but after the fruit is bred, especially during the growing season from March to June, it is better to apply fertilizer with higher phosphorus and potassium. Otherwise, it will only stimulate the growth of branches, stems and leaves. It is better if there are fertilizers for fruit trees, which may contain other minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, etc. that fruit trees need.

It is best not to cut off water, especially in hot weather and drought. Water thoroughly, allowing the roots to absorb enough water each time. However, the roots should not be allowed to soak in water, so drainage and proper watering are both important, and the principle is to wait until the soil surface is dry before watering.

The avocado does not need to be pruned as often as other fruit trees. Generally speaking, just prune away the wilted, broken and diseased branches. When you see young buds or flower buds, try not to cut.

Avocados are afraid of frost, so if you live in a place where the nights are very cold or even frosty, take precautions. Mulch the whole plant if it is a young plant, or if it is an adult tree, mulch the soil. However, in colder places, even if they can grow they may not bear fruit or may bear very little fruit.
