Summertime is a glorious time for gardening in South Florida and with the tropical downpours our gardens look more like Hawaii than mainland America, lucky for us without those pesky volcanoes. It is a great time to fertilize if you haven’t done so already and you should keep your clippers handy as at this time of year some plants seem to double in size overnight.
Truly it is amazing how resilient our gardens are, and really to the average visitor it looks like we never even experience a hurricane. Still you might have lost some shrubbery or now realize you are in desperate need of some additional shade or maybe some privacy screening. Now is the best time to do your planting and by taking advantage of all our tropical rain new additions will readily establish quickly and easily.
At Jesse Durko’s Nursery in Davie, we feature something to fit every garden situation and every gardeners budget. We are proud to boast “Florida Friendly Species” these are plants that are grown in-house without using pesticides and yet we can still provide a rainbow of flowering trees, shrubs, and groundcovers from which to select. We also grow dozens of palm species as well as clumping Bamboo.
If you happen to be a naturalist, we have you covered, as there are several easy to grow hedging plants that will give you privacy, and if you prefer to watch birds and butterflies instead of your naturalist neighbor we also have what it takes with an outstanding collection of bird and butterfly attracting varieties. .
