Hi there,
New member up here north of Frisco. I need some advice on how to market a field of Crepe Myrtles on my property. At a high level they are in the ground and have been for over 10 years, red, white and some lavender. There are over 1600 trees ranging from 3' to 14'. The average canes per tree are around 5 or 6, some are up to 10.

I plan on putting them in containers this fall and then making them available both wholesale and public.

My initial questions are in the area of harvesting to the containers. Any suggestions that would help will be gratefully accepted. I want to cause the trees as little stress as possible. I would appreciate any discussion along this topic that is possible.

In addition, the actual marketing and selling of the trees will be the next major step. Any ideas here will be great.

Thank you and I hope to learn much about this as well as the planting, care and growth of Texas landscapes.

Thank you,
Larry @ Amazing Graze

Hello Larry and a warm welcome to the board.

I am going to move your post over to the Gardener Exchange Forum as I think you'll get more lookies there to your questions.
