Doni Avocado Tree Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions angle down icon
plant sunlight

Sunlight Plant your Doni Avocado Tree in full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day) to maximize growth and fruit production.

plant watering

Watering A thorough watering once weekly is generally all your avocado needs, however. While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, avocado leaves love humidity. Indoor Avocados will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running heat during cooler months.

plant fertilizing

Fertilizing Feed in the spring, summer, fall and winter, after the tree has been planted for one year, using a well-balanced fertilizer.

And thanks to its early season, you can enjoy your fruits in May and June. Grow your Doni Avocado today and enjoy the delicious rewards year after year!

Planting & Care

1. Planting:  Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your Doni Avocado's root ball. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, then backfill the soil around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, and thoroughly soak with water as you fill in the dirt.

Adding a 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, which will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth.

2. Watering: Water twice a week for the first growing season; once established, rainwater will suffice. If you're concerned about your plant getting enough water, stick your finger 2-3 inches down into the soil. If it's dry, then it's time to water.

3. Pruning: To prune, as much dead wood as possible should be removed. V-type crotches, which are mechanically weak and prone to developing rots, should be eliminated. If the tree is planted outside, lower limbs should not be removed as the exposure can make the remaining limbs vulnerable to sunburn.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize your avocado tree with aged compost or worm castings when planting. Once established, use a well-balanced citrus fertilizer twice a year. Do not add fertilizer while backfilling. Instead, apply compost or worm castings to the soil surface after planting.

5. Pollination:This tree is self-pollinating, so there is no need for an extra plants.
