My Avocado plant's leaves are all turning brown from the tips and a good amount has fallen off. The browning has been progressing throughout the winter (and maybe also before that). I usually water it when the soil is (almost) completely dry, but the dirt is a few years old and quite compacted now (is that bad?). Some new (and fully green) leaves have formed in the last few weeks (the sun is shining more now). I also fertilised it with a more or less appropriate long-term fertiliser about two months ago. As you can see, it lives inside and in a probably too small pot, but it's about 2m tall now.
What caused this? What can I do to prevent the new leaves from turning brown too?
