Expert gardening and horticulturist, Robert Bowden, has written an easy-to-use guide to fruit and vegetable gardening in Florida.

Publisher's Note: Due to the outbreak of citrus greening disease that has ravaged orange groves throughout Florida, we recommend that you inquire with your local Cooperative Extension Service agent to obtain recommendations on safe practices before choosing to add orange or other citrus trees to your home orchard. Due to concern over the spread of this disease, we have replaced the image of a homegrown orange seen on previous editions of this book. Cool Springs Press
