Avocado plants

Zone Cheriton Va 23316 | Diane Partin added on February 7, 2017 | Answered

We moved from FL to Va in Oct. Had plants on porch. It got cold before we got them in. All the leaves are brown. Can they be saved? Also, I cut two small branches growing off the trunk. Should I have done that?

If you have lost the leaves, you can check the stems to see if they are still alive.
If you see signs of life, they may recover.
Here is how to test your plants.

Try not to stress to much, I like to remember that a plant loss makes for an opportunity!
