I recently bought a 2010 Ford Mustang for my almost 16 year old daughter. From our salesman, Matt, to everyone else, we had an extremely pleasant experience, and she is delighted with the car. This dealership and all of the folks who work there are the true definition of a down-home, friendly approach to what can otherwise be an unpleasant experience. They contacted and responded to contacts from me and my daughter promptly, pleasantly, and patience. Whether the situation called for a chuckle or a serious understanding of our situation, they made it just feel right. I highly recommend Gator City Motors to anyone! You'll be glad you got to work with these friendly and reassuring people.

, I have found A huge infestation on my powder puff tree. Is there any way to get rid of them without damages my plant or killing the bug They are very interesting and beautiful. I live in Bonita Springs
Most likely, they have traveled throughout most of North and Central Florida by now. A grower here in Central Florida uses ducks to control his population in his citrus area. It looks clean as a whistle now!
Hey there, I'm wondering if these are the same snails you are writing about. There has been quite the explosion of them this year. I'm almost always seeing them on walls and fences, have yet to spot them on any plants.We're in Kissimmee, close to Poinciana.
Raymond, Karen is correct. I started my macadamia grove using over 1000 seedlings. 15 years later I've got a hand full of exceptional varieties, and a handful of good varieties. The rest are pretty much junk trees that produce nuts that certainly aren't of commercial quality for one reason or another.I've had seedlings start to produce nuts in as little as 5 years. I've got some that are alternate bearers...only flower every other year. I have some that took 10 to 12 years to start producing nuts and I've got some 15 years old that have never flowered. Then there is one that produces a fantastic thin shelled nut the size of a golfball, but it only produces one raceme a year and gives me 4 or 5 nuts. I'm getting ready to clone it and see if the clones do any better. Who knows.That said, until some plant breeder/s decide working with macadamia growers in FL is a good thing to do planting seedlings is the only way to come up with new varieties. Hopefully we'll get some help from a plant breeder or plant breeders in the future. I've certainly been pushing for it for years. It still hasn't happened.
\"Future Commercial Grower Macadamia field day at your farm\"That may be possible. I'm just not ready yet. Unlike some others I've taken on the task more as a research project than hurriedly trying to create a cash cow. I believe macadamia will soon be a viable alternative tree crop in Florida, but there's a lot of research needed to overcome more of the hurdles innately presented by growing a tropical tree in a subtropical climate.
Hello Karen,You stated: \"The key is to prune the tree for shape in late winter-early spring to allow for more flower set and fruit..\"Depending on variety macadamia trees in Central FL bloom starting in December through about the end of March and sometimes into April. Nut drop begins in mid August through March of the following year depending on variety.Pruning on young non bearing trees can be done at most any time of the year. Pruning on bearing trees should be done immediately after nut drop, so timing when to prune is variety dependent.There are some varieties that bloom prior to finishing up with nut drop such as 344 and H-10 which seem to be common varieties in FL because their provenance seems to go back to George Anderson. The best time to prune them, if they are bearing trees, is about half way through nut drop, prior to bloom. Nuts from the pruned branches can easily be removed and processed because as usual because they are mature nuts at that point.
Hello Art-My name is Rebecca Robson. i live in Sarasota and have just started caring for a little Mac orchard here.I need help getting my bearings, evaluating the trees and making a plan.I am hoping to visit some growers, Arcadia is not far! Would you be open to a visit some timeThank you sincerely,Rebecca
Hello Peter,I just finished replying to your post regarding your cutting grown plant, but my message seems to have disappeared from the board. My apologies if there's any duplication.I was writing to ask if the tree you mentioned might be 'Waimanalo' I'm asking because that's the name of a variety that seems to be highly recommended for cooler coastal settings like mine here on the No.Central California coast south of San Francisco. Unfortunately, all of the best subtropical nurserymen I would ordinarily visit to find it have never heard the name!I DID manage to find Waimanalo mentioned in a couple of articles that recommend it to gardeners thinking about attempting Mac Nut trees in North and Central Florida. I'm not sure we're talking about the same plant, but if you think we are - is there any chance you've come across other trees of this variety in any of the nurseries you visit Thanks for any info you might be able to provide.Chris Coughlin
Hello Karen -Thanks so much for posting that resource list!As I indicated in a reply to Peter - another poster below - I am located on the No./Central California Coast south of San Francisco and I've long been searching for a Mac Nut cultivar known as 'Waimanalo' that the CA Rare Fruit Growers Assoc. seems to recommend highly for my more temperate setting.Trouble is - none the most reputable subtropicals nurserymen here seem to know the name!But I AM encouraged to find it recommended to North Florida gardeners in a few articles online. Is this cultivar a name you recognize from your experience with retailers in your areaI realize the publication date of your original posting is a couple of years old - if there's a publicCooperative Ag Education Extension office that might have more info - or a newer arrival on the FL nursery scene that could help, I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks!
Hello Peter -I just stumbled upon this thread belatedly in my search for the Macadamia cultivar known as 'Waimanalo.' Could this be the variety to which you are referringI ask because I am in California - on the coast south of San Francisco - and 'Waimanalo' is mentioned on the Calif. Rare Fruit Growers website as being a variety well adapted to the cooler maritime conditions we get here. Unfortunately - none of the nurserymen here seem to know of it - even down in subtropical San Diego where I'd be able to find many of the most popular commercial types.Strangely though, in my search I found a few articles on Florida's Mac Nut growers and 'Waimanalo' is mentioned as a hardier variety that is suitable for north and central Florida gardeners.Are we talking about the same tree I know that you've written that yours is cutting grown, but have you come across a grafted one anywhere in your area I'd be very grateful for any help in tracking this down - Thanks!
Hi Dave!Congratulations on your arrival to Florida! OK, there are a lot of unknowns in the commercial production of Macadamia. It is slow to get started as growers are still determining which cultivars to use in their groves. In addition, the ability to get plant material is limiting. You will need to consider getting material from online international sources if local is not available. You will be an 'explorer' of sorts. Since it is such a new venture for Florida, we will be learning from you. I would hesitate growing this commodity if you plan on using your retirement funds. This is extremely risky if you have never produced a commercial crop. A big learning curve. If you should have further questions, don't hesitate to contact me in my office (386)822-5778 or email me at (email@example.com). Good luck! Let me know how it goes!
Hi Colin,My wife & I plan to move to Southwest Florida & I am interested in the possibility of starting a Macadamia Farm if at all possible. I know absolutely nothing about it except the fact that I Love Macadamia Nuts... If there is an upside opportunity I am interested in taking a hard look at the possibility!Your input would be helpful!Thanks!DaveMinnesota 59ce067264
