In Part II, we will provide an overview of Florida Friendly gardening, soils, and the proper use of fertilizers and soil amendments. Plants have unique pests and their identification will be covered as well as when to use chemical versus biological controls recommended by the Green Industries Best Management Practices concepts. We will also cover common weed identification and diseases, then wrap up with a discussion on selecting plants for your landscape, followed by a question-and-answer session. The last 20 minutes of the class will be held in the butterfly garden. At the conclusion of each class, each participant will receive a 20% discount coupon for plant purchases in the Garden Shoppe. Advance registration is required at edisonford.org.
