2nd Handiest Garden Tool
The next item any Florida gardener (new or experienced) needs is access to information. The more information, the better. The most reliable and current information is the publications produced by the University of Florida Extension. They cover all areas of gardening in Florida and can be found online...absolutely free! Learn about creating a water-wise landscape, which plants are best for sun and shade, fruit trees well suited for north, central and south Florida, and much, much more. Taking advantage of this information will prevent you from making costly mistakes, not to mention a ton of back-breaking work.
