As you all know, I'm in Sarasota. I really, really want to plant the beautiful crotons I got at the sale. I know Scott (from Tampa) says he doesn't plant after labor day, but I'd also love to hear from Phil, Ray, and any other 'northeners', or even the Glocks from east Fort Myers, as to how late one can plant before cold weather. I feel it's better to get them in the ground rather than have them in pots and cover them. In my case, I have a lot and it would be difficult to cover them or put them in a protected area every time cold weather comes. I would love to hear opinions. I know I won't 'plant' the pots and pull them out in spring. I'll either plant or not plant. What do you say?
