Decided to join your group because I've been switched from Zone 9b to Zone 10a, compliments of the USDA!

So, what's shakin' people?  :)

I guess I'm zone 10b..Here I thought I was zone 9.  I moved from zone 2-3 in Canada.  This is all new to me.  Interesting that I can grow things here that I had been growing up there!  I brought some hens and chicks with me and they are doing great after 18 months!

Hi, I'm a new gardener and have found that if I use California natives I have color year round.  I am working on my Mom garden now via the internet and doing the same thing for her and she lives in Coeur d"Alene Idaho.  So folks search for your states native plants...you'll be surprised with what you have to choose from.

Should I have posted my questions in a different group since I am dealing with South Florida?

Even though I live and garden (mostly) in zones 4 and 5, I am helping my son plan/p.lant his backyard garden around the pool in Boca Raton. At this time of year (Nov) the ficus hedge shades the south side of the pool. He would like to make it look very tropical but in a controlled manner. Last week while visiting I planted 5 flats of impatiens among the elephant ears, tri-color ginger, lantana, pentas, and crinum lily. There are also 6 knock-out roses that are struggling - probably not enough sun and fertilizer. Any other suggestions for flowering bushes, perrenials that can handle the sandy soil? They do have an irrigation system to help with the watering.

zone 10 S/West
well, I started a group called the above so if anyone wants to join... we'll see how it goes
Comment by Yvonne Murray on October 18, 2009 at 12:31pm
I am so new, I have no opinion. I do know that at least those in Fla don't usually have issues with drought as we know it, nor is the heat quite so bad. But heat and humidity are not a good combo either.

zone 10 California... should we start out own group? Not to hurt the Floridians feelings, but I think we are working with completely different growing zones.
