Gardening Mistakes and Lessons in my Northeast Florida Garden
While I’ve been learning for a few years – this really is the largest and most diverse set of plants that I’ve ever grown – and I have really, really learned a lot this season. Trial by failure, if I may be so bold.
Join me as I walk around the meadow garden and share some of the mistakes and lessons I hope not to repeat next time. And as always if you have any tips or advice for me, I welcome that, too.
About Michelle in the Meadow
I am a suburban gardener located in zone 9A in Northeast Florida. I started growing in this suburban lot in 2019 and have expanded the garden every year. In 2020 I started making Facebook Videos about the garden, and in 2022 created this YouTube channel. I enjoy making content about my garden, what I’m growing and learning, and from time to time the general vlog, too.
About our Growing Season & Gardens
We have a 300+ day growing season in our area. We are currently growing in many raised garden beds of various sizes. Along both sides of the house, in grow bags, in the ground, in Greenstalk vertical planters, and pots on the patio.
