Written by beloved Florida gardening expert Tom MacCubbin, Florida Month-by-Month Gardening presents a foolproof monthly breakdown of what you should plant in Florida's peninsular climate, when you should plant it for the best chance of success, and  how to take care of it after it's planted. From annuals to vegetables, lawns, trees, and perennials, simply look up any given month and you'll find a complete gardening guide for every plant category, with advice for planning, planting, care, watering, fertilizing, and overcoming problems typically encountered by Florida gardeners during that time of year.
