Any suggestions on what is wrong with our avocado please? We’re in north Auckland. It’s a Cleopatra purchased and planted about 4 months ago and I dont think it’s very happy. Any advice appreciated!

Hi Natalie,

Is there any chance you would be able to describe the symptoms the plant is showing?

General advice to care for avocado is as follows:

  • Warm conditions and a frost-free environment (this is very important)
  • Full Sun
  • Good Drainage
  • A large space to grow
  • Sufficient water throughout the warmer months
  • Rich soil full of goodies, add compost and organic matter to the soil.

If it is not looking too happy my guess would be that it is struggling a bit over the winter months, It is hard to say without knowing the symptoms the plant is showing. Try putting on some frost protection or if it is in a container moving it to a warm and sunny spot in the yard.

Good Luck
