The weather in Florida is starting to get dry and cool, making it ideal for gardening. This time of year is great for Miami landscaping and even though the summer months are over, your yard can look fabulous in November.
Some of the best types of plants to grow in your yard during November include flowers, vegetables and herbs. Using a variety of plants will help add color and interest to your garden. Growing vegetables and herbs during this time of year can also be fun because you can harvest them and use them to cook delicious holiday foods.
Bright Flowers for Color
Many of the flowers that work well in Miami landscaping during November have warm colors like red, yellow and orange. These bright hues can breathe color into your yard. Flowers like Lilies and Snapdragons come in a variety of colors including red, orange and white. These flowers are taller and work well as a backdrop for other plants. If you have a long fence, these flowers are idea to add some color to the area and cover unsightly wood or metal chain link.
Big, bright yellow Calendulas and flashy red Amaryllis flowers can make a great addition to your garden. You can also add some smaller flowers like Baby's Breath or Balsam for more intricate details.
Vegetables for Home-Grown Ingredients
Vegetables in the Garden are a fun way to grow ingredients you can use in your kitchen. Home-grown foods have a fresh taste and make any dish even better.
Things like sweet corn, tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries, cucumbers, carrots, beans and squash do very well in November. You may also enjoy experimenting with some more unusual types of vegetables. Swiss chard, rhubarb, endive, kale, leeks and rutabagas also thrive during this time of year in Florida.
Herbs for Added Flavor
