Water avocados on a regular basis during warm seasons. Avocados do not like cold damp soil and can easily develop root rot if they remain wet for long periods. They are also sensitive to cold and may require proection from frost. Avocados are often alternate bearing and the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second avocado tree.
