I regularly come across documents, manuals, articles, infographics, and other informational pieces relating to the early years of commercial horticulture in central Florida. While many things discussed in these articles are either obsolete or outdated, the core principles and foundational knowledge remains true.
As the foliage industry in the area becomes threatened by large commercial operations and housing development, these documents are quickly becoming lost history. As I find them, I will be uploading them here to share with the world.
As you look at your houseplants, remember that without these foliage pioneers, that plant wouldn’t be yours to enjoy today!
