Fall should be our busiest gardening season in North Florida. It’s a more comfortable time to be outdoors. Many plants only do well when planted during the cooler weather of fall. Fall planted trees and shrubs have a higher survival rate as compared to those planted in spring. Many nurseries have a better selection of trees during the cooler months. And, nurseries and garden centers could use your business this time of year.
I will cover these topics during a presentation titled, “Fall: Florida’s Best Gardening Season” for the First Tuesday Series program on October 1 at the Crestview Library.The program begins at 10:30 a.m. with coffee and cookies served starting at 10 a.m. There is no cost to attend. The library is located at 1445 Commerce Drive (behind the Post Office). Call the library at 682-4432 or the Okaloosa County Extension Office at 689-5850 for more information.
