Texas Haas Avocado problems

Post  Rhonda Evans on 1/14/2012, 3:28 pm

I bought a three year old Haas Avocado tree last spring and it is not looking good. I have protected it from our last two frost, but our first freeze got it. This was after it went through a very dry summer (only we have a sprinkler system). No leaves, brittle in some areas, but one main stem is still living. The other I am not so sure about. Should I pull it up and pot it to try to save it? Should I leave it in the ground and hope its roots are not getting too wet in the bad clay soil. It is in a slightly raised bed. So want the little guy to make it. He is about 4 foot tall.

Not being a tree expert I would say to leave it for now, protect it from any more frosts and see how it comes back in the spring, And...maybe go to s good nursery (not box store) in your area and see what they have to say.

I'm with Chopper. Leave her be for now, check on her, keep her warm and protected if you can. I'd def. check to see if there are any Master Gardeners in your area, they may be invaluable. You can usually find them via your county extension office. Being in Houston you could always try A&M, they do make some of the best farmers out there.
