Q.Yellowing Leaves On Young Avocado Tree

Zone 90077 | Anonymous added on April 28, 2021 | Answered

We have had exceptional heat, so I gave the avocado tree (about 2 -3 years old) extra water. The leaves look much less wilted now, but they are also yellowing. Does that mean I overwatered it, or does this just happen?

I wouldn't worry too much about this unless you begin to see more of it. The watering and heat could certainly be what caused it. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/plant-leaves-turn-yellow.htm

You may need to fertilize it at some point - here's an article about that:
