For any of you Texas guys who did not go to the Expo this year or ever you are really missing out. It's amazing the amount of out of state growers who come as well. Florida sends the most but there were growers from probably ten other states as well. Everyone wants a piece of the Texas market. 1. The first picture is Glen Flora and their new sales girl next to a 60" Live Oak just like the one I purchased from them last year. 2. The second picture is Native Texas Nursery who is in my local Austin area. They are the best source for 10g & 30G Mountain Laurels as well as some other sizes. Plus other stuff. 3. The third picture is Groundworks from Alvin and they always brings some big stuff to add some wow factor. 4. This fourth picture did not come out as well but it is Alfaro's booth with a huge Persimmon, Mountain Laurels and other stuff. He always brings crazy stuff to the show as well. Rancho Encino was missing this year for the first time. They always bring some big stuff as well. I think they are still hurting from the glut of Live Oaks on the market from the market slow down coupled with the fact that way too many growers were big into Live Oaks. To be in Texas and not go to a show like this in your home state seems just plain crazy to me. Applicators like myself and irrigators were able to attend training and get their CEU's for the year as well. I went out partying with Matt and some of the Palmco guys from Pine Island Florida and had a good time. Anyone else go to the show?
