It’s hard enough to make sure your plants get everything they need without worrying about the weather, but it’s important to any garden’s success.

Of course, gardeners should only choose plants that thrive in their climate. Unsuitable plants will most likely fail to thrive or could die.

But even suitable plants may suffer during cold snaps. Keep an eye on temperatures, especially at night, and cover plants that aren’t cold tolerant.

Cold weather also has its benefits. Chores that can overheat a gardener in Florida’s boiling summers can be undertaken with ease in the wintertime.

Rain should also be on a gardener’s radar. Too much or too little can be detrimental to plants.


Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ in a Minute is a production of the University of Florida’s Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program, IFAS Extension, and WUFT-FM in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
