RESIDENTIAL HORTICULTURE

Residential Horticulture at UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County helps residents and professionals build and maintain beautiful landscapes that foster, rather than endanger, the wonderful ecosystem that is Florida. We can provide you with practical, how-to solutions based on University of Florida research. We provide training, in partnership with myriad university researchers, to help find the answers you need, when you need them. In these ways, and many more, we connect you with the land and what it offers.
