Hi there manx. Did you do any clipping of the stem as it grew? In my experience leaves will fall as the plant gets taller and taller. I have done some reading and apparently the avocados do much better if they are trimmed once they hit a foot or so. I have two that I topped off last week and one is already starting to show signs of branching out. They are both healthy so far and doing very well for me. This is, I have to say, the fist real success I have had in growing avocado from seed.

Here is some information that Bill has put together on growing avocados. Maybe it will help some.

'Burnt' leaf margins on avocados can be caused by a potash deficiency.

Manx,
is your avocado in water or soil? when they start getting long and lanky, it's time to cut the top off.
this will let the roots grow stronger so as to feed the folage.if it's in soil take it outside into partial shade and keep it moist, not wet.do not take it outside during freezing weather.by the way if it's 2 feet tall it should be in soil.
