Home Depot Avocado Tree Care Kit
Growing Avocado trees can be a rewarding endeavor. In recent years Avocado varieties have been developed for more cold hardy environments and can be found at Home Depot in certain stores. What this means is that Avocado trees can be grown in temperatures down to 15˚ - 28˚ when mature; especially in the northern parts of Florida, South Georgia, and eastern Alabama. At a young age these trees need to be protected around 32˚ due to freezing potential. In the southern part of Florida Home Depot stores generally carry the varieties best for those geographic locations.
Suggested varieties that are cold hardy are:
- Brazos Belle
Growing a Home Depot Avocado Tree can be done in the ground or in containers. Care for them is quite similar. Once you choose the variety you want growing the Avocado you get, at The Home Depot, it is recommended to keep the tree pruned at arms reach height so that harvesting fruit is easy. Growing in a container you will automatically have a smaller tree as it will be contained by the pot; and yes you can keep it in the Home Depot container you purchase it in.
