Growing your own avocado trees is a healthy, convenient way to cultivate home-grown food and add additional greenery to your garden. These fruit-bearing trees (yes, an avocado is a fruit!) can take a lot of time to grow, but are well worth the wait – avocado trees need a lot of sunlight and less water than other fruit trees. Avocado trees grow best in warm climates, including Florida, California, Hawaii, or Texas – those in colder or wetter climates will have a harder time growing avocado trees.

Avocados are truly one of the best foods out there for your body! Avocados are full of good fats, known as monounsaturated fats, which help keep you full and protects against heart disease.

Here are some tips on growing your brand new avocado tree:
The best time to plant your avocado tree is between March to July
Plant the avocado tree so that the feeder roots are about 6 inches into the ground
Place your tree so that it has a minimum of 6 to 8 hours of sunlight, either direct or indirect – it cannot bear fruit with a lot lots of sunlight!
Overwatering is a big problem for avocado trees – make sure that you follow only the recommended amount of watering a day, which is two to three times a week.
How Many Avocado Trees Should I Have?
There is no right or wrong answer to this, but make sure that you have enough room for all of your avocado trees to grow. By having multiple avocado trees in close proximity you allow for cross-pollinating. Avocado trees are self-pollinators, but their male and female organs are not online at the same time. However, because avocado trees need a lot of space, multiple trees should be planted anywhere from 5 to 10 feet away from each other.
