Gardening just acquired effortless with this North Florida calendar


As we are about to transfer into a new calendar year, I needed to share with you a gardening source that you can use through the calendar year. It is the UF/IFAS Extension North Florida Gardening Calendar developed by Sidney Park Brown, Affiliate Professor Emeritus with the UF/IFAS Division of Environmental Horticulture. For every month, there is a segment on “What to plant” for that thirty day period and a part on “What to do” in our North Florida lawns, landscapes and gardens.

Listed here is the calendar for January. As you can see, there is a great deal to do even in January here in North Florida. Each and every thirty day period follows a equivalent format.
