I have lived in Naples, FL for 8 years and tropical gardening is a whole new ball game! Not much survives the summer here. I have seeds for Everglades cherry tomatoes that I am going to try and I have learned what to plant at different times of the year here. I have grown dwarf yellow poincienna trees from seeds and they are about 8 ft. tall now. I have planted 4 of them and also one red poincienna that I grew from a seed. The flowering trees are amazing. When I lived in Orange County, CA, I loved the Jacuranda trees........so gorgeous. In CA I could grow Calla lilies and even fragrant bulbs, but not in FL! We have tomatoes and peppers and squash growing in a raised bed along with herbs. The soil is bad and the weather is a challenge, but I have to have gardens!
