Gardening Newsletters and Articles

The UF/IFAS Leon County Extension Office’s Horticulture Program’s mission is to spread research-based, horticulture information to the citizens of Leon County. One of the many ways we do this is by writing newsletters and articles for publication. UF/IFAS Extension staff and faculty, along with Master Gardener volunteers, write these in hopes that it will help you have a beautiful, Florida-Friendly landscape.
