On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Craig Morrell, I'm with Landscape Restorations in Miami, Florida. We're here at Palm Hammock Orchid Estate in Miami, Florida, talking about basic gardening. The title of this video section is planning ahead and this is one of the very most important issues in all of gardening, is to think about what's going to happen to that garden section as it matures. And here's a great example. We've got a terrific idea for planting here a Begonias, Yellow Shrimp Plants, Crotons and Aralias, except this Jatropha above me has gotten way too tall for this section. This is a plant that you now have to invest some time and effort and money into getting it pruned to bring it back down so that the entire garden section is in scale. So here's a good example so that if we had planned ahead we might have used a Dwarf Jatropha to get the job done. So planning ahead can make a big difference in how well you succeed with your garden. And if you're happy with your garden, it'll show the effort.
