Description

The ultimate guide to gardening in the Sunshine State! 

Written by beloved Florida gardening expert Tom MacCubbin, Florida Month-by-Month Gardening presents a foolproof monthly breakdown of what you should plant in Florida's peninsular climate, when you should plant it for the best chance of success, and how to take care of it after it's planted. From annuals to vegetables, lawns, trees, and perennials, simply look up any given month and you'll find a complete gardening guide for every plant category, with advice for planning, planting, care, watering, fertilizing, and overcoming problems typically encountered by Florida gardeners during that time of year.

Fully illustrated with gorgeously colored step-by-step method and plant photography, this is the ideal how-to guide for Florida gardeners. Whether you're growing milkweed in Tallahassee, planting a Simpson's stopper in Orlando, or simply wondering where (or when) to start, Florida Month-by-Month Gardening helps you take your first steps toward mastering the Florida gardening landscape. Companion books Florida Getting Started Garden Guide and Florida Fruit & Vegetable Gardening are two more excellent additions to your Floridian garden library.
