Growing tips for a south alabama rookie...
I was really excited to find the alabama gardening forum! I recently moved back home after a brief stint in kentucky (where literally all of my plants died). I previously had a wonderfully green thumb in tuscaloosa.
Things that excited me:
1. spring plant swap/trade
2. someone was growing lilacs? I was told by a nursery owner that they wouldn't survive our heat/lack of freeze.
Does anyone have tips on growing in the daphne/mobile area 8b. I'm coming from a 7. I'm not sure how different my growing experience will be here.
Excited to be here, and thanks in advance!
