    I’m in zone 8B. I can start seeds indoors absolutely great with strong healthy seedlings with fat stems. As soon as I’m done acclimating them to the outdoors, they do NOT survive. I have tried 3 years in a row. I live in the city, so I really think it’s the 5G towers and lack of pollinators. I haven’t seen a bee in almost 4 to 5 years in my area. I don’t know what else to do. My houseplants are doing great, but I honestly think it’s our air, water, and 5G.

    Hi! New subscriber. I wish I knew all this when I first moved. Like you said it co$ted me lots! Do you have any videos with alternatives to grass here in SoFlo? Where do I find out what planting area I’m in? Thank you very much for all you do and share. ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

    VERY informative video, even just living in SC, there are some similarities, but some stark differences and I have no doubt I’d make some of these mistakes… thanks for the video!

    This is the best advice! I wish I watched this before I bought my house and started "gardening" in Sarasota. She forgot to mention pests though – like rabbits!

    I am trying to start a garden with vegetables and native wildfowers but iguanas keep attacking them.
    Any ideas on how to handle iguanas? I live in south Broward county.

    Trying to plant seeds when it’s too hot! And thank you for mentioning the red tide.

    I love the sunshine mimosas as ground covers. Thatโ€™s such a good point, those tropical house plants will go crazy outdoors in FL

    Where can I buy "beauty Berry" Callicarpa americana? I live in Naples, 10b. You didn’t mention whether you give tours.

    Just found your channel on Florida Urban Homestead. Great and relevant information for growing in the Florida heat. I gardened on a small scale up until about 8 or so years ago. Life and work just got in the way. Hope to get a fall garden in the ground this year using raised beds. I subscribed to follow along. If you get a chance, check out our small family homestead in NE Florida and consider subscribing. Thanks for the info.
