Phone has been ringing off the hook. Should be a very nice turn out. Hope some more of you can make it. Very nice plant people in the Tropical Fern & Exoyic Plant Society! :cool:
But Ron......thanks to you, there was a great selection of croton plants that were offered to anyone that wanted to add not only some color to their garden but, some old rich history in some of these varieties that were being offered. Very generous!
Yes, kudos to you, Ron! You did a great job of promoting the auction, providing an array of plants and educating potential buyers on their needs and history.
