In keeping with posting Croton photos of personal gardens in this sub-forum I would like to share a few before & after pix from one of the gardens that surround my home…here’s hoping you enjoy them: 01 YEAR 2007 - My outdoor flight of steps as viewed from below before I was turned-on to Crotons. 02 YEAR 2011 - First attempts at Croton landscaping. 03 YEAR 2012 - FYI…flight of steps measure 90.0 linear feet. 04 OCT2014 - Access to the garden from above. 05 (TODAY) – Robertico’s hidden garden as viewed from below. These past couple of years I’ve more than doubled the number of Crotons and generously sprinkled Fishtail and smaller Phoenix Roebelenii Palms throughout this Croton patch. NOTE: Please see photo # 01… before and after comparison. 06 Introducing “CANELO”, my ever-present companion, pedigree… abandoned Mutt. “This little guy” showed-up on the ranch one day (about 5 years ago) and decided to stay in order to adopt me, obviously with food and board included in the deal! PHOTOS 07 & 8: A few random Croton pix from the subject garden.
