I could not survive without "Florida Gardening: The Newcomer's Survival Manual" by Monica Moran Brandies

My inspirational books are "Easy Gardens for South Florida" by Pamela Crawfod and Sunset "Florida Top 10 Garden Guide" by Robert Bowden.

There's a month by month book and another book that I often refer to, one or both are by Tom Cubbins, but I can't seem to locate them right now, so I can't give you the title.

Month-By-Month Gardening in Florida - 1999 - Tom MacCubbin

Lots of useful information. I see there is a revision out for it.

OT but.....Both of the paperback books "Florida Home Grown" and "The Edible Landscape" feature cover photographs of Tom MacCubbin that I took for Waterview Press a long time ago....

The Florida Home Grown cover was shot in Leu Gardens near the big house.....

The Edible Landscape cover was photographed in his own backyard garden near Bear Lake....his wife prepared the veggie basket for the shoot....

Here is a link that might be useful: Tom MacCubbin Covers
