Featured Blog: Central Florida Garden

Visiting Dr. Michael Denner’s blog, Central Florida Garden, is like immersing yourself in an all encompassing lecture on the benefits and pitfalls of fruit and vegetable gardening in Florida. This college professor generously shares his 5 years of experience in growing plants, fruits and vegetables in his Deland garden. You will find information on sustainable gardening practices (recycling greywater, drip irrigations systems, composting, environment and more), best seed varieties for this area (including the online nurseries sources he purchases them from), pest control and even some recipes.

Blogging since 2005, he has accumulated an impressive amount of information for successful vegetable gardening in Central Florida. And, if you’re not growing vegetables in your garden, you may want to reconsider and begin planning your fall garden. You’ll save lots of $$$’s, plus you’ll enjoy a bounty of fresh veggies right outside your backdoor.
