About Florida

The Sunshine State is known for its warm weather and long summers. It also has very high humidity and frequent rain showers. The state tree is the Sabal Palmetto and Florida’s state fruit is the orange. The state is home to many tropical plants and wildlife. The state’s hardiness zones range from 11 in the Florida Keys to 8 in the northern parts of the state, so a diverse range of plants can be grown throughout the state. So whether you’re hanging out on the coast enjoying the mangrove trees or inland with citrus trees Florida is a fun and rewarding place to start a farm!
