Welcome to Tropical Florida. They call Florida the “Sunshine State” because literally, the sun is shining on average 237 each year. A lot of people move to our State to enjoy our mild winters and our low taxes. They may spend a fortune trying to grow the beautiful bulbs and plants and gardens they remember from their northern backyards. The bad news is most of your northern plants die in Florida’s summer heat. The good news is there are a lot of plants that will love your new environment.
Our average daily temperature may exceed 90 degrees from May to October, and the relative humidity during those months approaches 80 percent. That tropical climate translates to hot and sticky summers.
