  1. Have over 20 acres of crop…treefern, leatherleaf, magnolias…time to learn spray and take care of fields myself. No one takes care of the fields like they should or like they are theirs when they lease.
    We have over 10 acres do you need a place to plant petunias to grow for your event? I am trying to keep land from being developed

    • Sorry Michele-
      The class was held 2 years ago. No field trials were needed. Good Luck!
