Update on Xavier, 9.24.16

Seems like people like to see what’s going on with my avocado tree, Xavier.  Here he is, September 24, 2016. I didn’t see buds this year, but he seems healthy and strong. I know we are going to see major leaf drop this fall, like we always do!

    My avocado has some leaves with tips turning brown, others with pin size holes, and some with sticky residue. Any ideas / suggestions?

      Hi Jenny. Sorry about the delay. I have no idea about the sticky residue, but could be some sort of pest? Search for some way of natural pest control on an avocado tree – perhaps some sort of homemade spray with dishwashing liquid and garlic? I’m not recommending that, I’m just saying I heard that those types of sprays are good for those sorts of things. But consult an expert. Good luck!
