I'm back after a wicked bout with that seemed like the flu. For all of you who missed the class yesterday I'll be holding it next Wednesday, same time same channel (1:30 to 3:00 in my office). I'll be covering Spring bulbs, local fungus (in preparation for the rainy season which is not here just yet), and of course the best of 2012's plant information questions so far.
Here's a cool link; it's the UCR Avocado variety page. The trick is to select at least two varieties that are good for your climate zone and are A and B type Avocados respectively. Having both of these flowering types can help insure a steady and abundant supply of Avocados.
