In an ideal situation, everything planted in north Florida would grow well. We have growing conditions to suit every taste; sandy, well drained soils, soils prone to periodic flooding, flatwood high pH soils and coastal areas prone to salt water and salt spray.
Our clients want to know;
1)  once they understand growing conditions, they can have a green(er) thumb
2)  other than trial and error, better plant options are available
3)  how to have harvestable fruit and vegetables in north Florida

Visit the Extension Master Gardeners booth. They love to “talk plants.”  Bring garden questions, plant samples, share photos of your flowering pride and joy, and discuss Florida Friendly Landscaping options specific to your site. Free UF/IFAS horticulture handouts will be available.
