This really is something different – so different in fact, we’ve not grown them either (yet!). We’ve located a small specialist grower in Holland who is developing ways to grow Avocadoes in Northern Europe. These fine trees are a great starting point. They are of course tender, and thriove in humid conditions, so will need Winter protection – they can grow outside on patios fine though between late May and September. They will grow quite quickly at 50cm a year. They are already pruned, so this season will produce side branches. It makes an attractive indoor plant anyway, forming a woody trunk with pleasant glossy leaves. They usually take 5-7 years to produce fruit on a mature tree, and have fruited in UK before – indoors and out. It’s so new though, if we’re honest we really don’y know!!. You will have great fun trying too, safe in the knowledge that virtually no-one else has ever grown one! Very limitted stocks.
