About FL Gardening

Mission: Florida has a unique climate when compared to the rest of the United States and a different set of gardening rules. Through my website, I aim to build a trusted resource that empowers Florida gardeners with accurate, practical information on all plants including veggies, fruit trees, and ornamentals. Whether you’re a beginner setting out on your first gardening project or a seasoned green thumb, my goal is to help you succeed in cultivating beautiful and productive gardens.

Engagement: I believe in the power of community and the shared joy of gardening. If you have questions, need advice, or just want to talk about plants, please don’t hesitate to reach out at josh@flgardening.com. I’m here to help and love connecting with fellow garden enthusiasts.

Meet Josh, The Author Of FL Gardening


Hi, my name is Josh and I was born and raised in Florida. I found the love of plants when in 2014 and unfortunately for the plants they’ve had to deal with me ever since.

Certifications and Expertise:

  • FNGLA Certified Horticulturist: Earning this certification from the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association really helped me understand the nuts and bolts of plant care right here in Florida. It’s given me some great tools to help both new and experienced gardeners avoid common gardening snags and grow their gardens successfully.
  • Permaculture Design Certificate: I had the fantastic opportunity to learn under Koreen Brennan at Grow Permaculture. This training wasn’t just about getting a certificate to hang on the wall—it taught me practical ways to apply sustainable gardening practices specifically designed for our unique Florida environment.
