I love the Garden in Argentina! I just planted an avacado: do you think it will grow! :0 My friend has one that's about 80 feet tall.

Your photos are wonderful!

Is the third picture from the top an avocado tree?

Lynda: I think you will grow beautiful Avocados, plant it on a hill, because Avocados don't like wet cold feet during winter. During summer they don't require much water. They are such a tall trees, my mom has one that is less than 5 years old and it's taller than 25 feet. They produce lots of fruit. My mom planted them from seed, and no grafting necessary, they are doing amazingly :)
I planted two little trees during winter and they died, probably due to the abundant rain, I am growing two avocado seeds(they already have roots), and I also have two little trees to plant, me and my husband are thinking where is the best place to do it. I saw avocado trees for sale at the store they are not expensive to buy . thanks! :)

LiLy K.: yes, that is an avocado tree also the 5th pic, my mom grew it from an avocado she bought at the store and saved the seed. They grow into tall trees fast, that tree is not over 4 years old and taller than a two storey house

Thanks for the comments
