I have grown an avocado from a stone and it has done very well, I'm not sure what to do next.
It is in a pot in a warm conservatory in a pot of about 1ft x1ft. It is now 6ft high.
Do you think it needs repotting?
It is about 18 months/ 2 years old.




I suppose it depends how big you want it to be. At the moment it looks very healthy and lush, but if it starts to look unhappy, then re-pot it.

I used to move mine outside in the summer and it loved it - grew enormously each year. In the end it was too large to continue to do this and it had to stay outside. It survived a couple of winters wrapped up on a verandah but sadly finally succumbed to a very hard winter.

It lived for about eight years altogether. No avocados though....
