Gardening by Months

A garden’s needs change drastically in Florida when moving from the cooler, dry season to the rainy, hot and humid season. It’s very different from the North, which has a distinct growing season and an ‘it’s crazy cold can’t grow anything’ season. To help navigate Florida’s seasons, I have outlined what is happening in my garden each month and what gardening chores I feel are important given the time of year. I have also included a recipe from harvesting. Remember I’m still learning, and my yard and garden may be unique to your own.

*NOTE: I live in central Florida on the coast, so certain tropical plants can survive at my house that may not 30 minutes inland. Be sure to understand your own growing zone and plant accordingly.
