No time? No space? No expertise? No problem! Florida Gardening on the Go reveals how easy it is to have a beautiful, bountiful garden, despite those limitations.

Too often, would-be gardeners complain that they don't have enough time to spend planning, planting, and pruning as they'd like. Columnist Lynette Walther—who has gardened in Florida for more than four decades—offers projects that can be accomplished with minimal effort and upkeep.

This time-saving guide provides step-by-step instructions in a month-by-month format. Even the busiest person will find useful “quick tips” for creating a low-maintenance garden, a garden that makes a big impact in a small yard, or a garden that is easy on the environment.

Having trouble with weeds in your lawn? Try corn gluten. It can be applied throughout the year and does not harm children, pets, or wildlife. Squirrels digging in your container gardens? Repel them with sprigs of rosemary.

Florida Gardening on the Go is perfect for busy professionals, people with small yards, or snowbirds with a home that is occupied for only part of the year. The gardening tips provided by Walther entice readers to get involved with plants even if they don't have much time, and emphasize how to use Florida-friendly plants and organic practices to create self-sustaining and practical environments.
