Avocado tree dropping leaves

Bigstick62March 3, 2012

Hi everyone, I am a newbie to this forum and I hope someone can help me out. Earlier this week my avocado tree started to drop leaves and some blossoms like CRAZY. Is this normal or something else going on? I recently added some fertilizer to the base and am hoping it didn't cause this episode. I tried uploading a picture for all to see but am still trying to figure the procedure out. Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

Bigstick62, that is normal for avocados they will have blossom and will soon be followed up by new growth.

Hi ajaysr5, thanks for the follow up. I feel better now, in that this is a normal occurrence and I may actually get some fruit this year.

My avocado just did the same thing. It lost a bunch of leaves, and flowers, but it's not going nude by any stretch. They're pretty hardy.
