Wow, look at that list. It is so nice to see so many Florida blogs. They were few when I started almost three years ago.

Thanks for the list Susan.

Happy Gardening ~ FlowerLady

I'm familiar with a few on this list of new Florida gardening blogs and love them. Can't wait to visit the others! Thanks for keeping us informed. It's so helpful and fun to see how others garden in our hot and humid (except when it's freezing) environment.

Thanks for sharing the blogs...my plant growing is confined to containers now (on a small patio) and I'm still learning the container gardening rules!

I am an avid central Florida gardener (native, vegetables, hoyas, lipstick plants, African violets, etc). My blog - http://anoldsoulbyelihart.blogspot.com/ - is mostly about gardening. However, I'm also passionate about reading (amongst other things) and am prone to blog about them as well. I was fortunate to stumble across your blog as I love reading about other Florida gardeners.

Thanks for sharing all! I recognize a few but I didn't know there were so many.
I mostly write about organic veggie gardening and a recipe here and there.
