November chores to keep your Florida yard looking good

4 min read

Fall in Florida is a time of change and an apparent lack of identity. We still get days near 90 degrees but may see freezing temperatures a few times at night. This means mmany plants in your yard go dormant for the winter while others start flush with new growth and blooms. Here are some tips to prepare for all of these changes in your garden.

Put seasonal plants to work

Many gardeners do not think about fall being a time for gardening but there are many fun ornamental plants we get to use that are usually only available in cooler months. Seasonal favorites such as mums and poinsettias flood many garden centers and can beused for decoration in planters and in the landscape. Both do best in moist, well-drained soils with full sun. Poinsettias are a bit more maintenance, requiring a location without artificial light, acidic soil, monthly fertilization and protection from frost to look their best.
