I was going to write a more thoughtful post this morning, but because I didn't wake up until 7 a.m. (!) I'll have to save that for another day. Instead, let me share some photos of our avocado tree.
Isn't it huge? Hard to believe just a few years ago it was this.
I'm hoping if we keep it in this pot it will eventually stop growing so enthusiastically, having maxed out its root space. Maybe we'll have to turn it into an extra-large bonsai, with periodic root and foliage pruning? I have no idea.
I wish we could plant it outside, but the general consensus is that avocados can't survive outdoors in London. It's got another few feet to grow before it hits the ceiling -- which probably means another year or two -- so I'll keep you posted!
