New to Florida gardening? Part I of this two part class provides a foundation of how plants work, their nomenclature, and understanding the unique weather patterns and unusual soils found only in Florida Zone 10. This class will educate participants with identification of our native plants, ornamentals and recognizing invasive plants as established by the State of Florida. In Part I, we will also discuss the horticulture of palm trees and spend the last 20 minutes in our Palmetum. Please bring a notebook, pencil and water to class. Hats, sunscreen and good walking shoes are recommended for the outdoor portion. Each class includes handouts, recommended reading list, and additional resources to help the Florida gardener succeed.
Part II will build on the information learned in this session. At the conclusion of class, each participant will receive a 20% discount coupon for plant purchases at our Garden Shoppe. Click here for more information about Part II.
