Many of you know or know of Dave Butler. He has properly registered as "Croton Guru" and I have chosen to admit him. However, I will alert him to this thread in which I will declare publicly that this Forum is under the direction of The Croton Society. And while I choose to allow more controversial discussions, The Croton Society may choose not to. And it is my impression that they choose to keep things friendly and non-confrontational. So as far as I am concerned, Dave is welcome to contribute. He knows a lot about Crotons, and he has lots of photos and opinions. But if he has trouble getting along with the rest of the group, or if anyone has reasons as to why he should not be allowed to participate, let me know. Let's see if we can't make it work for the benefit of sharing knowledge about Crotons.
