Fall is Florida’s Best Gardening Season

Larry Williams, a horticulture agent with the University of Florida Okaloosa County Extension Service, will present Fall: Florida’s Best Gardening Season, at 10:30 a.m., September 4, as part of the first Tuesday series at the Crestview Public Library.

Williams believes that fall should be our busiest gardening season in North Florida because it’s a more comfortable time to be outdoors and many plants only do well when planted during the cooler weather. Fall planted trees and shrubs have a higher survival rate compared to those planted in spring. Coffee and cookies will be served at 10 a.m.

Location: 1445 Commerce Dr., Crestview. For more information, call 850- 682-4432 or the Okaloosa County Extension Office at 850-689-5850.
