Although the keys
are known as a tropical paradise to many people, it's a pretty harsh
climate for plants.
Coral rock soils,
seasonal rains, salt water intrusion and hot summers can spell
disaster for many ornamental plants.
That's why you can
count on GreenThumb to start you out on the right foot!
"GreenThumb Certified" Nurseries educate their clientele about the
"Keys Friendly" landscaping principles that will help you
