Make Sarasota County Smell Sweet Again

It’s official: citrus is back for the home landscape!

As Florida Master Gardeners writes: Since the introduction of citrus greening to Florida in 2005, homeowners have been discouraged from growing citrus at home. However, UF/IFAS is now recommending the planting of citrus trees again and has provided a new line of support for those who are interested.

UF/IFAS is piloting an initiative called “Citrus in the Home Landscape” this spring, and it includes a new website and an email address dedicated solely for scientists to answer your citrus care questions.

Many thanks to Deb Benedict of Benhaven Haven for alerting us to this wonderful development!
