Hey all,

What a place! Also, what a nice guy! He has a HUGE selection of tropicals of all sorts, including the largest collected buttonwood and other trees I have ever seen! Some for less than $100, believe it or not! He stopped to talk to me and even give me advice on the styling direction of the trees I bought from him. Plus, he gave me insigts into problems and questions I had about bougs and other tropicals. Really great and talented guy. The trees he had in his gallery showed some of his talent and it's amazing. Great vision.

I bought three smaller trees (I'll be posting pics once I get home on Sunday. I'll ask questions then...), a buttonwood, a bucida (olive), and another tree I can't remember the name of that is similar in growth habit to bouganvillias. All have great nebari and decently interesting trunks. I was more interested in the nebari than trunks at this time.

Thanks, Erik and I look forward to your seminar in Cincy!

Daniel

Daniel, I purchased my Brazilian rain tree from him in Oct. Everything you say is true, very nice guy.

Awe come on Harry what else do have to do during the long cold winter, just sell a couple of those pines, and build a nice sunroom addition. Then you can have them around you all year.
