Plant, Grow, and Harvest the Best Edibles

From Quarto Publishing Group:
With plentiful sunshine and a 12-month growing season, Florida gardeners may be the envy of growers from every other state. But don't be fooled by the jealousy: growing fruit and vegetables in Florida is just as challenging as it is anywhere else. For starters, the Sunshine State has three distinct growing climates, so veggies that thrive in Orlando may perish in Pensacola. And that same sunshine that fuels your tomatoes in the fall will fry them in August. Timing is critical to gardening success in Florida. To help you work your way through these and many other challenges, author Robert Bowden has written this newly updated book. A seasoned gardener and horticulturist, as well as Executive Director of the Leu Gardens in Orlando, Bowden knows all the secrets of gardening in Florida and shares them with you in this beautiful, colorful book.

Florida Fruit and Vegetable Gardening is an easy-to-use guide. Full-color images illustrate the more than 25 fruits and berries featured, plus more than 35 vegetable recommendations. Helpful growing tips, charts, and maps show you the best edibles for the exact location where you live in Florida. It is a perfect book for long-time Florida gardeners as well as newcomers to this state. This updated edition includes information on new varieties of plants that have proven themselves in just the past few years, as well as important discussion of the outbreak of citrus greening disease that has ravaged orange groves throughout Florida.
