What Happened to "Gardening in a Minute"?

For the past seven years, “Gardening in a Minute” brought radio listeners helpful tips on Florida-Friendly gardening. The program, made possible by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science, was only one part of the Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology’s mission to protect and conserve Florida's natural resources through research-based sustainable urban landscape practices.

The Center underwent a strategic planning process in 2011 to refine its goals, and will now focus its efforts on other ways of connecting and communicating with Florida homeowners and gardeners. And so, the last “Gardening in a Minute” segment aired on WUFT’s 89.1 FM and other North Florida public radio stations on September 30th. The Center staff and our producers at WUFT have enjoyed creating “Gardening in a Minute,” and we wish to thank our listeners for being a part of this experience.

Gardening Solutions logoBut the wealth of Florida-Friendly landscape and gardening information is not going away—“Gardening in a Minute” has blossomed into “Gardening Solutions,” the same in-depth advice and information based on University of Florida research, only better. More detail, larger photographs, and easier navigation will be featured as part of UF/IFAS Gardening Solutions.

It’s our goal to bring Florida homeowners and gardeners the best information about Florida-Friendly plants, sustainable landscape practices, and ways to beautify your yard and garden—all through UF/IFAS Gardening Solutions.
