beckygardener's blog: East Coast Florida Gardener

Posted on Jul 9, 2011 11:14 AM

I am located on the east coast of Florida (Hurricane Alley). I love organic gardening! I mainly garden for butterflies and hummingbirds as well as other wildlife!  This year I am growing numerous vegetable and fruit plants, so edible plants are a new interest for me!

Some of my plants are in containers and e-buckets, but the majority are in raised garden beds. I love creating Garden Rooms in my yard. My favorite plants are Salvia, Daylilies, Clematis, Brugmansia, Passiflora, Roses, and a host of cottage garden type plants. I am also a BIG fan of water gardening! I have several water containers and pre-formed ponds with water lilies and lotus! My current passions is salvia cultivars and species that attract hummingbirds and butterflies! I also have taken on an interest in succulents because they are not bothered by the Florida Summer heat. I enjoy seed trading and plant co-ops! My favorite hang-outs here are "Garden Rooms" and "Ponds and Water Gardening".
