February Free Florida-Friendly Landscaping & Gardening Workshops
Free Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Gardening Workshops Scheduled in February 2022
Optimizing Irrigation Systems
Citrus County Utilities’ Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, from 2:00-3:30pm. Landscape irrigation is supplemental, but often accounts for up to 50-70% of total residential water consumption. Irrigation practices such as seasonal scheduling, catch can calibration, and selection of drought tolerant plants are essential to creating a sustainable and water conserving landscape.
Palms in Central Florida
Citrus County Utilities’ Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, from 2:00-3:30 pm. Palms are a prominent and often costly element in Florida landscapes. Selecting cold-tolerant palms, providing the appropriate nutrients, recognizing deficiencies or symptoms of decline, and providing an appropriate control is essential when caring for your palm.
