Ailing Avocado

TSMartindaleJuly 3, 2014

My avocado needs some help. It seems to be dying from the bottom up. It's still producing new growth, but the new leaves dry up shortly after reaching a decent size. Lower branches seem fine, but the main shoot is struggling. The tree is 1 year old, grown from seed.

The tree looks a lot better than it did a few weeks ago, but there are still a few dead leaves and I'm worried about it spreading again.
