permaculture in Florida
- Hi there,
I am new to this group, but not entirely new to the ideas of
permaculture. I am seeking to apply them to my realm of influence --
my home and yard in Tampa, Florida
Around my home I am seeking to put in edible and useful plants
which will require a minimum of care. One common difficulty is that
standard growing instructions are not entirely applicable to
Florida. Often plants which require full sun in other climates are
burned by direct sun here -- they do better in partial shade.
I am seeking advice for establishing a planting area on the
northside of my house. This planting area is shady Oct through Feb,
but receives a fair bit of sun in the warmer months when the sun
sets further to the north.
What kinds of edible useful plants are likely to do well in this
