@KariSamuel @cyndi see i normally am one for minimal maintenance but in this case if i do nothing this will eventually get 50 feet tall... and non-heirloom avocados grown from seed are almost guaranteed to never produce fruit or at least fruit worth collecting. My intention is to keep this one less than 10 feet tall in more of a pruned shrub shape.
