Georgia gardeners can grow dwarf avocado trees outdoors in containers, taking advantage of the long growing seasons and hot weather. Leave the container trees outdoors through much of the year but bring it inside with grow lights when cold (below 50F) as the tree is tropical and not cold hardy... which is why only container grown trees are recommended for Georgia. They can be damaged, if grown outdoors, by frosts and freezes in zones colder than 9 or 10. If you use pinching of the tips of all branches every 3 months, a dwarf avocado tree may be kept compact enough to bring indoors in winter.
