Since the spring season has arrived, it is perfect for gardening in Florida. Keep an eye on the UF/IFAS suggested planting dates to get a head start for spring gardening. Proper planning and execution of what to plant, when to plant, maintain the landscape, etc., are crucial for getting a good yield.
Having proper knowledge about the plants, soil, landscape, and climate of the area, among other factors, is exceptionally vital in gardening for getting the desired output. The following are the key points that one should consider or keep in mind before getting their hands dirty.
The tests conducted by the University of Florida on various vegetables and herbs prove that selecting plants with the right genetics to withstand common pests and diseases found in our state should be the top priority. One of Florida's most common viruses or pathogens is the Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV). Gardeners should pay close attention while selecting the vegetables that have some resistance to these types of viruses. Another important aspect of getting a good and healthy vegetable yield is the quality and nutritional component of the soil. If looking through an online seed catalog, the gardeners should focus on buying the plants that are well suited for the South Eastern climates and soil types.
It is recommended to grow plants and vegetables that you like eating or are having difficulty finding exactly what you like at the local grocery stores. The most suitable plants you can plant during the spring season to get the most bountiful produce are listed below.
