I am planning on purchasing an avocado tree (grown from seed) online, as the seller has agreed to provide me with a cutting from his mature, fruit bearing plant, and I want to experiment with grafting. Unfortunately the avo trees (I think they are 1 or 2 years old) I'm purchasing are already in the ground - so they need to be dug up as well. [ I expect the trees to be very cheap, so it doesn't really matter if I fail, but I'd like to get as much right as possible ]
- I understand that avocado trees have sensitive roots. Are there any tips for relocating an avocado which is already in the ground ?
- Do avocados have tap roots, and if so, how far down would they typically go ? (I've heard and read a lot of conflicting information here)
