For amateur and professional gardeners, this instructional book provides practical, time-tested guidance for having total success with lawns, gardens, orchards, and more in one of the most challenging environments, 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, planting charts by season, and a glossary.
