Can I grow avocado trees in Columbia Tn 38401 and expect them to live? I want to put them in the ground and not move them around in pots. Thank You Chuck

Hass avocados have a chance here in Tennessee, but It would have to be mature to be planted. It would also need a second tree. They are either male or female, so You will need to find out what sex your tree is and get a matching tree of the opposite sex.
Most avocados will not grow here, and will die with the first winter. There are VERY VERY few avocados that will survive in TN, so make sure that yours is one of those before you plant it.
