Free Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Gardening Workshops Scheduled in July 2022

Managing Garden Pests Wisely
Citrus  County  Utilities’  Florida-Friendly  Landscaping™  Program  is  offering  a  free  
gardening workshop on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, from 2:00-3:30pm. Correctly identifying the cause of 
plant damage is always the first step to controlling an infestation. Inspection, scouting, 
identification, selecting the least harmful control, and accurate application  are important pest 
management practices.

Right Plant, Right Place
Citrus  County  Utilities  Florida-Friendly  Landscaping™  Program  is  offering  a  free  
gardening workshop on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, from 2:00-3:30 pm. Once established, the right plant 
is often sustainable  without  additional  supplemental  watering.  Choosing  appropriate  plant  
materials, planting them correctly, and managing them wisely ensures a garden’s success.

Palms in Central Florida
Citrus  County  Utilities’  Florida-Friendly  Landscaping™  Program  is  offering  a  free  
gardening workshop  on  Thursday,  July  28,  2022,  from  6:00-7:30  pm.  Palms  are  a  prominent 
 (and  often costly) element in Florida landscapes. Selecting cold tolerant palms, providing the 
appropriate nutrients, recognizing deficiencies or symptoms of decline, and providing an 
appropriate control is essential when caring for your palm.

Classes  are  currently  held  online.  Please  register  at  
to participate in the workshops. For more information, contact Program Coordinator Steven Davis at
