I planted grafted scions of this tree in my yard 2 years ago. The grafted grand babies of this mother tree were 1.5 feet tall when I planted them and now they are over 12 feet tall! Here’s the avocado tree planting video: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEYHWsEfXhiFI4tROyJ0rHia-JhTYB48D This year the avocado trees I planted flowered for the first time! Next year I’m hoping for fruit! When I’m able to harvest my own avocados from my backyard garden then I will gain 50 pounds for sure! 😉 http://www.JakeMace.com Join My Facebook GARDENING GROUP Here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ArizonaGarden/ Find Me on Snapchat & Instagram: “JakeMaceTaiChi” Join My Monthly SEED BOX PROGRAM http://www.SeedBankBox.com Special Thanks to Shamus O’Leary and Greenies Garden for join me and setting up this gardening adventure: 1.

    That was the same with a Macadamia tree that my grandparents on my dads side had growing here :- https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-28.5116727,153.4041364,3a,75y,312.97h,101.34t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1seWcPHFdRyeA4P_APq5js8w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en-gb

    They are native to the east coast of Australia up on the New South Wales/Queensland border so they grow in more of a humid subtropical climate,it's a bit different to Arizona which may have a climate which is a bit more like Lightning Ridges climate as it is more of an arid area as it is much further inland.

    I don't know if the tree was there before my grandparents built there in 1950 but they grew Lady finger bananas there as they were in partnership with another family & their bananas went right across the country,my grandfather died just before his 98th birthday last August whereas my grandmother is too old & weak to look after herself now,she's stuck in a nursing home now at about 85 years of age,its amazing how my grandfather on my mothers side is doing better than her after alcohol abuse,having a stroke & 2 heart attacks,he lives by himself & is 89 at the end of this May.

    My grandmother on that side left him in 1987 & died of cancer a month before her 77th birthday in 2006.

    My dad has a 16 year old Macadamia nut tree which is the child of his fathers old tree,I have 4 x seedlings growing in pots which are the grandchildren of their old tree,I scooped a couple out of underneath my dads tree at Xmas in 2016 which I potted but one of them died due to the hot summer heat (it got up to 47 degrees celsius back then),the other one I still have in a pot along with 3 other seedlings that I sprouted which are from the seed of my dads tree,I soaked some viable seeds in water for 24 hours & potted them at winter time,it took ages for them to germinate as even in late September (Spring),they hadn't yet germinated, it wasn't until about November that they sprouted,others that I planted didn't !!!!

    Hopefully, I'll be able to plant them in the ground this year, I may plant them in larger pots before I do I don't know but I will have to provide them with wind & sun protection at this stage until they get older !!!!

    I do have to test to see whether the soil they will go into is clay soil or not as I watched this video :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_kBsMpHHkA

    where a Brisbane nursery suggests digging the hole then filling it with water,if the water soaks in after 1-2 hours,then the soil is o.k.,if not it is clay soil meaning the soil needs to be mounded up before the tree is planted.

    I have a couple of Hass avocado trees which have sprouted from store bought avocado seed,one is still pushing through & I'm not sure what stage the other 5 seeds are at,what I needed to know is how to determine the type of soil which I'll plant the trees into so they won't die of root rot,in clay soils, a lot of tropical fruit trees usually need to be mounded up as the tap root penetrating the clay kills the tree when the weather is really wet !!!!

    Where I live is meant to be humid subtropical,well,my dad came home from seeing his mother & he thinks the climate has ended up being more like it is there,yet their summer rainfall is about double ours so that's what the main difference is,ours is a bit strange as I'd assume that it's more like Charleston in South Carolina but their average winter temperature is a few degrees lower than ours !!!!

    Ill believe it when I actually see some fruit on an avocado in Arizona.  There are absolutely no videos out there that show fruit on the trees.

    You got some good drone skills you should race them

  • John Mcneill 3 months ago

    Gr8 editing. Like the drone footage. Hope to see drone footage of your place. Would like to see exotic fruit growing in other countries. Durian in Malaysia (Ag research facility), lychee and avocado in Taiwan (pineapple and tea plantations), sour sop in Indonesia as well as jamboo and dukoo (?)

    How did the Mother tree not freeze when it snowed? Why can't we, in the Southwest grow them?

  • orlandogreengirl 3 months ago

    There is No "Global Warming" – as has been represented by Government and industry leaders. HUGE FARCE!!! The storyline " bad humans, you and I…" causing harm to the weather bakance on this planet !!! This is a huge Lie and falsely blamed on average family and humans because we are here. These manipulations of our beliefs and freedoms in the future is to get you to acquiesce to change you life and freedom ( or lack there of, furthering Taxation – to usher in a CARBON TAX… eventially you will have to oay to breath, to ask " permission" to have a child, a tree a roof over your head or just to live, period !! Controlled and planned extinction..they DO NOT CARE ABOUT PLANET, TREES OR YOU & I… THERE IS NO GLOBAL WARMING AS IS PRESENTED BY THE GOVERNMENT STORYLINES. LIES and more, LIES, UPON LIES TO SHAPE THOUGHTS AND OUR ACTIONS to further Agenda 21, NWO/ the United Nations take over of all the land from Americans. UNESCO (corporation created to hold land all over the planet, "Heritage sites" ) There will come a day when we will not own any land if trees, hence the "One World Order/ NWO " as they manipulate thought and actions of humans in U.S.A., fabricated stories of "us" causing increase CO2, because we exist! Nonsense plants and human ate reliant on one another ther plant expires oxygen and humans CO2 and back again in natural harmony. Maybe they shouldn't allow deforrestation? Maybe they shouldn't allow Fracking and strip mining…that affects planet balance and trees/plants and the weather.. "Global Warming" … as in catch phrase, There has been manipulted weather changes, has been intentional weather modifications with chemtrails and Harp program, etc.

    Please do more videos like this. It is interesting to learn about the trees, land and people's stories.

    Oh, and very cool work with the drone! We would love to learn more about how to use that have an aerial view to see our vegetation as well.

  • Mrs.Layton'sClass 3 months ago

    The adventure you took us on was wonderful! I very much enjoy getting to see the history behind the varieties of trees and vegetation and my whole family and driends (we watch together) would LOVE to see more adventures that give more backgroud on the trees and vegetation! Awesome!! Thank you!!

    The answer to this, and all other growing food in the desert questions, is to add more of the water that you don't have, leaving less for the plants that actually belong in the desert.

    Adored this video so much! Nature is glorious, truly!
