For amateur and professional gardeners, this instructional book provides practical, time-tested guidance for cultivating lawns, gardens, orchards, and more in the challenging environment of Central Florida’s Zone 9A. Due to the region's soil conditions, temperature extremes, salinity, and water supply, it is very difficult to grow anything in this area. Yet this guide features factual information to enable anyone, from the rank amateur gardener to experienced professionals, to successfully work with herbs, shrubs, trees and palms, and fruits and vegetables. Also included are sections that detail the differences between wanted and nuisance wildlife, complete planting charts by season, and a useful glossary.
