I want to plant some Croton in the front yard as a border. How many inches do you have to spread them apart? Is there a special soil for these plants? My front yard measures about 10 feet by 4 feet. I live in a Condo.

You can plant the crotons at the distance of 1 feet to 1.5 feet, Closer planting will give a faster bushy appearance.

Dear Friend, it could be that your plant is dropping it'sleave because it sits in a drafty area? I know mine did much better after I put it in a room with less air movement esp. cold air and the plant did so much better. Croton do not like cool drafts they will drop all their lower leaves. Hope this hint might help you.
