Am growing a cold hardy avocado tree in a container. I repotted it with a mix of Espoma organic cactus soil and the soil it came in. Also fertilized with the Espoma citrus tone. I have been noticing the tips on quite a few lof the eaves are browning. I tested the soil and got a reading of 7 on the PH levels a little high on the alkaline side. If anyone can give me any suggestions, names of products to use I would really appreciate it.

Wait it out. When you water, run extra water through the plant. Don't fertilize until next year. Espoma isn't the best soil for avocado trees, it has added limestone. Avocados like their soil slightly acidic.
