Can we create ecosystems in our gardens? Yes, if we group plants with similar needs, such as soil, water and light.

Of course, Florida native plants compose our distinct pine land and hammock ecosystems, but we also can create facsimiles of tropical rainforests, arid landscapes and pondscapes. Native or exotic, all will have to be maintained, and this class will teach you how to do it.
