Why we created a Florida Friendly Plant blog

January 22, 2009 by Rick

For the last 30 years we’ve gained quite a bit of experience and have learned some design principles from working with the plants we grow. We’ll add tips and ideas here in the blog to supplement the plant facts in our web site database. The placement of plants offers many possibilities for gardening enjoyment. We hope you find something interesting here and come back from time to time to see how we’re doing. We want to be a ‘good news’ source of information without a lot of advertising. Gardening and decorating are good for you and hopefully you’ll find something here to complement your lifestyle. We’ll share posts and links to ideas that inform you about successful gardening, using colors in a pleasing way and getting the most from your efforts. It’s our hope that the plants we grow and the information we share will add lasting beauty and value to your home.
