baby dwarf avocado tree help
I bought a baby dwarf avocado tree from the garden center at my local home improvement store and planted it in the corner of my backyard in the beginning of August. I followed all the planting instructions but it started drooping after transplant. I got on my computer and found an avocado growers website. They said that all transplanted avocado trees will go through shock and not to worry about drooping, just be careful not to over-water. So, I've been watering about once a week-ish, making sure not to water again until the soil feels dry, then giving it a deep root watering. It gets about 6-7 hours of sunlight everyday. Other than that I've been leaving it alone. Last week it started dropping leaves and now there are only 3 left and I'm not seeing any new growth. All the branches and remaining leaves are still a lovely shade of green, and the leaves that dropped didn't look unhealthy. Am I slowly killing this poor tree or is still just going through shock? Please help!
