Tips For Planting From Containers
into the Northeast Florida
from S & J Tree Farm and Nursery
Planting your new container grown plants into your
Northeast Florida landscape has it’s share of challenges. I have noticed over the years of helping people with
their plant questions and problems, that we all tend to have difficulty with
the same things! Florida is unique in an of itself, so it is no wonder that gardening here is unique
as well. So if you are new to gardening, don’t be afraid to dig in and get growing, hopefully with these few basics
under your belt, your landscape will get off to the best start possible. Or if you are a garden veteran from a
cooler climate zone, with just a little bit of tweaking, your green thumb will be as happy in Florida’s sandy soils
as it was anywhere else in our beautiful nation!
There are allot of factors that can affect your plants overall
health. The soil it is planted in, the amount of sunlight it gets each day, how much water it receives, how long
that water sits in the soil after rains or irrigating, and how much exposure to wind or cold winter temperatures
your plant will receive all have an effect on your plants overall health and vigor. Click the link above for more
information on things to consider before planting your container grown plants into the landscape.
