Looking for help

dbbrown85April 1, 2014

Just bought a house in central florida and want to start planting but never have. I have a few spots that seem to get decent sun but I guess most of the yard would be considered "dappled sun". The yard is full of pine trees, has a few azaleas and a couple other trees and plants I don't know the name of. There is one spot where I would like to plant a hedge for quick privacy and the local nursery suggested sweet Virburnum. I want it at least 8' high, fast growing and low maintenance. It is quite shade in this spot, looking for opinions on that. I would also love a fruit bearing tree, I was leaning towards mulberry. I bought a snowball Virburnum just to get my hands dirty but very new to gardening. So the less maintenance the better. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

I'd suggest you asking at the The Florida Forum or else The Shrubs Forum

I can understand the need to get your hands dirty by playing in the soil. Have fun!
