Avocado tree

Zone Australia | Dools added on September 30, 2016 | Answered

I recently planted a grafted avocado tree, coastal sandy soil. I used compost and mulched with mushroom compost, in the ground about a month now. Looked healthy for a few weeks, but now the leaves are all turning brown. The tree is at Bribie Island. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Dools.
