UF/IFAS Extension presents class on choosing Florida-friendly plants

RELEASE DATE: March 7, 2016

TAVARES — The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension in Lake County is hosting the “Plant This Not That” class from 10 – 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 19 at the UF/IFAS Extension in Lake County, located at 1951 Woodlea Road, Tavares.

Residential Horticulture Agent Brooke Moffis and Sumter County Florida-Friendly Landscaping Agent Lloyd Singleton will deliver the hour-long presentation, which will delve into selecting proper plants for Central Florida’s climate.

“Residents often grow plants not appropriate for our weather, or they choose to grow plants that are invasive,” said Moffis. “This class will offer suggestions of beautiful alternative plants that are suited for our local growing conditions.”

Space in the class is limited. Advanced registration is available online for $5 by credit or debit card at http://bit.ly/1LSKqMt. Pre-registration by cash or check is also accepted at the UF/IFAS Extension in Lake County, during normal business hours.
