Leaves Falling From Avocado

Linda Lodes added on June 7, 2016 | Answered

My tree is about four years old and the leaves along the lowest part of trunk are falling off and around the edges are brown. It's an indoor container and is about four feet tall. I have two younger trees that are not doing this. I live on the Texas/Oklahoma border. This is a first, as I have grown many successfully from seeds. They are gorgeous and fun and I give them as gifts. Is this an easy fix?

That sounds like blight. Prune the affected areas, remove from current pot and wash it out really well. Flush the soil out with distilled water and re-pot. Hope this helps!
