Got Mulch? The best time-saving measure a gardener can take is applying mulch. This goes for everywhere from vegetable gardens to flower beds. Mulched gardens are healthier, have fewer weeds, and are more drought-resistant than un-mulched gardens. Done properly, it'll allow you to spend less time watering, weeding, and fighting pest problems. Organic mulches include formerly living material such as chopped leaves, straw, grass clippings, compost, wood chips, shredded bark, sawdust, pine needles, and even paper. Organic mulches decompose slowly, releasing nutrients into the soil. It encourages earthworm activity, improving soil tilth and nutrient content. Lay the mulch down on soil that is already weeded, and lay down a thick enough layer to discourage new weeds from coming up through it. It can take a 4 to 6 inch layer of mulch to completely discourage weeds, although a 2 to 3 inch layer is usually enough in shady spots where weeds aren't as troublesome as they are in full sun. Putting a layer of cardboard or sheets of newspaper down first will help discourage weed growth. Organic mulch retains moisture. Piled against the stems of flowers and vegetables can cause them to rot; keep mulch about 1 inch away from crowns and stems. Mulch piled up against woody stems of shrubs and trees can cause them to rot and encourages rodents, such as voles and mice, to nest in the mulch. Keep deep mulch pulled back about 6 to 12 inches from trunks. We exclusively sell “Florimulch” at the All Native Garden Center. Made locally here in Fort Myers, it’s a shredded or chipped organic mulch made from melaleuca, the invasive paper tree from Australia. It is the environmentally sensible alternative to cypress, and has been tested by the University of Florida and shown to be termite resistant. Florimulch is endorsed by the Friends of the Everglades and certified by the Mulch & Soil Council.

What a great place to see native plants in their natural habitats! Bring your boots since the trails are probably under water ...
Trail conditions may not be everyone's cup of tea this time of year, but you can still stroll along the dry boardwalk at Bird Rookery Swamp and see so much!

Moon-Moth Gardens: When it comes to an insect popularity contest between butterflies and moths, it’s the butterflies that get most of the attention. Butterflies are usually, but not always, larger and more colorful. This isn’t a reason to ignore moths, though. "They are the night shift of pollinators so not as many people get the chance to see them, and all are a food source for other wildlife you want to attract, such as bats, tree frogs, flying squirrels, songbirds, and even small owls. They can be beautiful, like the polka dot lesser wasp moth and bella moth — Florida's two prettiest. Other varieties will make your jaw drop. Like the polyphemus moth, named for the big fake eyes on its wings. A flash of those glaring peepers can scare away predators. You'll see colorful moths during the day, or at dawn and dusk. Night-shift moths tend to be brown or gray so they won't be conspicuous when they snuggle up to a tree trunk to sleep during the day. Creating a sustainable ecosystem in your yard means less work, and more entertainment, for you. Moths attract predators including birds and frogs, and pollinate night-blooming plants, among other good works. In Florida, gardening after sundown makes sense during our hot weather months, and you get to witness the nightlife beyond your back door, including gliding squirrels, screech owls, moonflowers and night-blooming jasmine. All of which rely on … you guessed it … moths! Besides native moonflower, saw palmetto, viburnum, white salvia, Spanish bayonet and non-native night-blooming jasmine, hummingbird moths visit native porterweed and honeysuckle just before daylight, when these flowers open, getting their share of the nectar before the bees and butterflies visit it during the daylight hours. Common wisdom has it that moths visit night-blooming plants with flowers that are typically white or pale in color. So, plant a moon-moth garden. You’ll extend your enjoyment of your outside spaces and help provide nectar to not just the day insects, but the nighttime ones as well. While most pollinators visit different gardens, moths may live their whole lives in one garden. Moths are attracted to gardens with a mix of plants that include grasses, flowers, shrubs and trees. A moth friendly garden should be pesticide free. It should also contain mulch, not rock. Plant clippings and fallen leaves should be allowed to accumulate a little for safe hiding spots for moths and their larvae. Some people are scared of moths, and many gardeners regard them as pests. There are of course moth caterpillars that eat our clothes, apples and dried foodstuffs, but these number fewer than 1 percent of the more than 4,000 moth species in Florida. A notable distinction between butterflies and moths in North America is the fact that some moths do not have functional mouths or digestive tracts as adults. These moths, which include the wild silkmoths, do all of their feeding as caterpillars, then emerge later as non-feeding adults that live for only a few days before they mate and die. Other notable facts: butterfly caterpillars form a chrysalis before the big change; moths form a cocoon or burrow into the ground before they pupate. Most butterflies rest with their wings upright, perpendicular to their back (the only exceptions are some of the rather moth-like skippers). Only a few moths do this and keep their wing out-stretched when resting . Like butterflies, many moth species are declining because of chemical pesticides and loss of safe habitats; but the tachinid fly, which was introduced to control gypsy moth populations is also to blame. In addition to the gypsy moth larvae, the tachinid fly also kills the larvae of over 200 other species of moths. The best thing we can do, for everyone's sake, is STOP the broadcast spraying of pesticides around our homes and neighborhoods!!
