I was recently given an avocado tree that is a 5 ft tall stalk. It is in a pot indoors. I would like to trim it to encourage bushiness.
How much should I trim off? The top five leaves? The top three?
Should I cut right above a leaf? Right below? In between two leaves?
Can I trim it now, or should I wait until spring/summer?
On the long thin branch (the lower part where there are no leaves), there are also little sprouts going
Maybe I could try cutting above one of these?
