I have a one foot avocado plant growing on my windowsill. Can it grow outside in the UK weather.
Where should I plant it.
Thank you

Welcome!

Welcome! I'm afraid that the avocado won't grow outside in the UK. It probably would do well in a greenhouse there. It might be able to go outside for the summer, but your winters would kill it. I can't grow them in my Arizona or New Mexico environments, and we're much warmer.

Avocado is a tropical species plant and should be maintained in temps that stay above 50 degrees F.

Depending upon the origin of the Avocado, they are hardy down to Zone 8 or so.

We grew them in California, Zone 8, with great success.
