Allen - This video is more relevant to container culture in temperate areas. For those of us who can grow them in the ground - not much helpful tips
Here is the same guy. Now we can see how the old names get lost when "the trade" starts promoting these plants.
Another video for those who grow crotons indoors. Looks like she has alot of Petras to sell.
For our spanish speaking guests - here are spanish subtitles on this one.
Here is another one giving tips for indoor culture.
Kraft Gardens has been around many,many years. I know Kevin (gentleman in video) and see him at the tradeshow every year. I'm not too sure if they still continue to grow all these now. But yes, their market is totally up north and send many truck loads of plants there yearly.
Kraft Gardens was in Deerfield until about 10 years ago. They were one of the few landscape nurseries that were on the east side of town, Powerline Road. They moved up to Ft Pierce and sell primarily to big box stores and interior-scapers. Their land costs in Ft Pierce are a fraction what they were in Deerfield, but that is a common story in the industry. They pay more for cold protection now, but less for everything else.
