Thanks everyone for sharing your plant lists! My wife and I just bought a house in Temple Terrace (next to Tampa) and I'm interested in converting our yard to permaculture / food production. We both work full time, so it will be a gradual process, but I really appreciate all the info you folks have shared here. Thanks!

One thing I was wondering -- is there a particular Florida nursery that you folks would recommend?

Thanks!

Hi folks,

I'm new both to home / land ownership and to permaculture. I'd like to gradually convert the property we have (a small lot in Temple Terrace -- just outside of Tampa Bay -- zone 9B) to more food-bearing plants. We've got collards, sweet potatoes, bananas and (I think) a pomegranate right now, and I've planted an avocado tree. For starters, I'd like to get blackberries (brazos), purple passion fruit and a celeste fig tree. Can anyone recommend a good nursery in the Tampa Bay area?

Also, thanks to the folks who posted their food forest lists here. I'll definitely check those out. I'm doing a weekend course (1 part of a PDC) on food production in September, so I'm sure I'll have some more questions after that!

Thanks,
Dave
