Avacado growing

I have 2 avacado plants that are avout 3 feet tall. For the last month all new growth that comes out turns brown along the edges and dries out killing the new leafs. I am having the same problem with a blueberry bush I am growing. I have tried Imunox and old fashioned soapy water with no luck. Both plants are in a cow manure compost soil. Can any help before my plants die? I can find no sign of bugs so I believe it is possibly a disease of some kind.

Are these potted plants? The soil is composted cow manure alone? or mixed in with regular potting soil? If it's straight composted manure I would repot immediately into plain potting soil and water thoroughly, and allow to dry out between waterings.


RE: Avacado growing

i grew a 3ft avocado tree from a pit. it was doing great while i lives in california then i moved out to nebraska and within days all the leaves fell off and died and now the tree just sits there looking like a skeleton. when i 1st got to nebraska it was below freezing so i kept it in the garage, then it looked like it died now the temp is up and iwater it and it gets tons of sun everyday and still nothing. and also all over the tree, like on the branch times there is some sort of white powdery stuff. what is that? did my tree die? or isthere something i can do for it???
