    I saw Jose at the Aeroid show yesterday...he asked when we were going to host another Croton event ?
    I'm down...but lack the skills to plan. Maybe Bullwinkle and Native Son..Mike & Lamar, could help as they did for our last, very well attended, event.
    I think Judy's air-layering demonstration was very helpful to all present...a replay may be in order.

    My garden took quite a hit from Irma...but Greg, DeDe and crew have it looking great again...minus a few palms.
    No Croton damage tho.


    I might try a little magic and have Moose reappear

    I agree! It ha s been 1 1/2 years since our last event at Ana’s! And after Irma I am in need of restocking-especially in the Keys!

    On your next trip south stop by here and you can take your pick! Bullwinkle is the planner I just do as I told. Anytime is good for me.

    and either date works for me but 31 March is the better (17th is St Patrick's Day) since it's a bit later in the year.

    31st seems the leading candidate.
    Would like to know if Marie Knock & Judy Glock (rhyme un-intentional) are OK with the date as no ceremony complete without the High Priestess' of Crotondom.

    Hi all ,planning is still ongoing but looks like lunch and auction at Mike Harris in Cooper City around noon.Also a early morning stop at my house in Plantation for those who come in early.Plans will finalize by month end.For those who have not been to Mike's house are in for a special treat.As close to a botanical garden as you are likely to see in a private house :) Over 5 acres planted with rare palms, Boabab's and hundreds of varieties of crotons etc.

    Thanks for the info. I would love to see both gardens so hopefully I will be able to get down early enough. Looks like Cooper City is fairly close to the Searle Brothers Nursery which is a fairly easy drive. I don't think I have ever been to Plantation yet. I am sure the gardens are spectacular.

    Can I make a wish? I got to like my Oak Leaves : Arrowhead, Fred Sander, Geisha Girl, Irresistible, Mrs Snyder Disraeli and Thanksgiving. I wish to have more of them (Quirko, for example). More of those that I already have would be also much appreciated. Thanks:)

    I will have an interesting oak leaf for the auction.I have been calling this one Stan's
    Big and Weird.I picked it up from Stan a few years ago and this one always intrigues me with the fact that no two leaves are the same also very large leaves.

    Karl, that might be a hard one to Id. I have looked all over I think that is the only one of those I have.

    It has such a unique color combination. I have not seen anything like it. When it gets to a size you can easily propagate, it looks like something that would bring interest at a future auction. I would certainly bid on it. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, 8 months ago I sold my place and bought my 'retirement' home. My garden was the major selling point so I left all behind. The fun is in the chase so I'll be in buying mode for the next few years. This WILL be my last garden :)
