FROM LITTLE AVOCADO PIPS:

Here it is, 9 months down the line. Doesn't she look lovely so far. She is very comfy on the patio, enjoying the evening sun and just about to develop a couple more branches.

It's looking good!!! Will it ever bear fruit, do you think? It never ceases to amaze me how big plants and even trees spring from tiny seeds.

Very unlikely it will bear fruit....10 years someone said and I might be pushing up the daisies by then!

Lovely! I tried avocado years ago and they always went horribly "leggy" on me. How did you manage to get leaves all the way up? (or rather ... what was I doing wrong!)
And as for pushing up the daisies, I reckon anyone that garden blogs deserves to live to 120 in order to see the results of their work. i certainly intend to!

Hi Sue

The last crown of leaves is the first sign that the avocado is going to develop three branches. I haven't done anything special except tell her how beautiful she is and give her water now and again!

Wishing you Happy holidays and all the best in the New Year! hugs NG

Hi Ladyluz,

Happy New Year - and I hope the long silence just means you've been having a lovely Christmas.

We're now gearing up for round 2 of the Garden Bloggers' Carnival -a bit different this time, in that I'm asking people to nominate a post from another person's blog. Full details on my blog today (Jan 3rd). I hope you'll participate again, like you did last time.And of course, if anyone else reads this, please join in!

How's the weather in Spain? here in Italy it's snowing ...
Sue
