« on: April 14, 2018, 02:04:19 AM »
What type of avacodo is best to use for grafting in clay soil I live in lower northeast Texas.

I use my lila seedlings for rootstock for cold hardiness.  I haven't ran into compatibly problems, but most stuff I graft is mexican or mexican x guat avocados.

Do you have them planted on the ground or in pots ? If you do have some planted in the ground did you mend the soil first ?

All of my avocados are in the ground.  I use mounding methods and some bricked raised beds.  I do amend the soil to make it drain faster that I use on the mounded and raised beds.

Have used Florida pits with 100% success, or in the case of one I didn't like, Brogdon, multi grafted to a bunch of shoots that came up from the Waldin root stock after I stumped it.

Corpus Christi has the same black gumbo Victoria Clay Series that Houston has.  Here's a young, bearing Don Gilloughy avocado tree in 2 rows of concrete tree rings in 2004.  Partially shaded too.
