Current Florida Summer Gardening Problems

Due to the large amounts of rain we’ve been receiving lately, many of us (self included) are experiencing problems of standing water in our lawns.  If not corrected, this can cause rotting, disease, and death of our lawn grass.  But that’s not all our worries.  Many have reported to me about problems of large grasshoppers eating the foliage of many of our plants, especially crinum lilies and cannas.  Others have mentioned invasion of ants, roaches, and scorpions in their homes.  These latter pests should disappear as the outdoors begins to dry out.

In the meantime, suggest you visit website to learn about specific solutions to any of these problems.
