Water Gardening - Central Florida's Favorite Hobby

Dec 5, 2007
Water Gardening and Central Florida make a great combination. Florida, famous for its year round warm, tropical climate is an ideal place to practice water gardening. Not only the weather condition, the natural aquatic beauty in the form of plants and animals also makes it the most sought after destination for gardening enthusiasts.

Even though there are certain times when the temperature in Florida starts moving south, it doesn't deter the spirits of water gardeners who find their own unique and innovative ways to counter the weather threats. This is basically done by careful selection of plants and animals that can withstand extreme temperatures. So no matter whether it's a bright hot sunny day or a dim cold winter night, the water gardening in central Florida still remains a widely indulged in hobby.

To counter the problems faced in water gardening due to occasional extreme weather conditions in central Florida, one should equip oneself with enough knowledge that is applicable in all seasons. Following are some important tips that can also be used to effectively solve the weather problems:

If you have been residing in central Florida for a long time then you must have observed certain patterns emerging in climatic conditions. Central Florida normally gets very cold weather once in every three years.

You must equip yourself with as much information as you can about protecting your water garden from frost. One of the best methods that is very commonly adopted is to cultivate the water garden in a container. So when the weather starts showing sign of turning very cold, one can just shift the container indoors to protect the plants from frost.

In case your observations suggest that the cold weather will not stay for very long, you can simply cover your plants with an insulating material. This will shelter the plant from brief climate change. However, a significant limitation with this method is that it can only be applied to small water gardens. You can explore many more methods of protecting your water garden by taking assistance of your local gardening store. They normally stock many products specifically meant to counter such problems and are very helpful in guiding their customers. One important advice is not to use plastic to cover up the plants during cold weather as plastic is not a very good insulator.

You must choose your plants for water gardening with great care. Select the ones that can be grown both outside and inside the containers. Some great plants that can be used for water gardening in central Florida are palms, some specific varieties of ginger and vine - Allamanda.

If taken care of properly, your water gardens can become every gardener's envy. You can also join a gardener club and share ideas with fellow gardening enthusiasts.
