    Last year I was still looking at sticks with no new growth. New growth is busting fast this "spring" with warm weather. :)

    Ron, The Scottser is busy at my job M-F right now. On the weekend busy tearing out plants and planting crotons. Still have around 70 to get planted. Today I started the undertaking (long over due) of removing a 10'x8' patch of bromeliads.

    Scott - You sound like me. I just removed an old queen palm and an ancient boxwood to make room to plant crotons. I have 50+ to get into the ground. :eek:

    New plantings for this weekend:
    Miami Beauty
    Daisy Ortega
    Ortega's Hybrid
    Victoria's Gold Bell
    Princess Eugenia
    Wilma
    Red Quill
    Wes Nock
    Aubrey Christian.

    Plants relocated to a sunnier aspect this weekend:
    Corkscrew
    Christian's Landscape
    Dreadlocks
    Geisha Girl
    Buddy
    Robert Halgrim

    Two Petras removed and rogue planted across the street.

    My yard is full of rock and digging is slow. Palm roots are everywhere, slowing down the planting hole production. One plant at a time... :rolleyes:
