What's in Bloom at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates?

Garden Talk: Vegetable Gardening

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On November 1st

Planting season is in full swing now that fall is here in Southwest Florida! But did you know that you can garden year-round in the Ft. Myers and Naples area and expect a good harvest? Come to our next Garden Talk on November 11, 2017 at 10 am at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates to learn about the types of vegetables that will grow well for the next few months and even year-round.

From sweet potatoes to pandan to pest-control, this talk will cover a lot of ground and isn’t your typical “How to Grow Tomatoes” presentation. Learn composting tips, companion planting recommendations and how to increase your growing success. Edison Ford Garden Specialist, Eric Francovitch, and Arlo Simonds, FGCU Food Forest president and manager of the Pine Manor Community Garden, will teach the class and answer your questions about growing edibles at your home.

Wear close-toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen and bring water to drink. A 20% off coupon will be provided for use toward Edison Garden Shoppe purchases. Cost: members: $10; nonmembers: $15.
