Avocado Trees
Q.

avocado plant

Anonymous added on December 1, 2014 | Answered

1. I have an avocado plant growing (3 ft) in a pot. I brought it in for the winter. Will it ever grow an avocado or will it just be ornamental?

2. Should I plant it in the ground next spring? Will it survive the winter? We don't get a deep freeze but we do get temps below 32 for short periods of time.

Thank you.
