If you have a nursery or greenhouse in Lake County and have a problem, contact Juanita for free site visits and consultations. The plant clinic for commercial producers is open at the UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research and Education Center in Apopka every Tuesday from 1-4 pm and many issues can be determined there for free.
If you want to be listed or change details provided, just let Juanita know.

Nursery Best Management Practices (BMPs)
Signing up to participate in Nursery BMPs means you are following all the practices currently required to keep our water resources clean. By filing a Notice of Intent Form (NOI) you will be presumed compliant with all state water quality standards. This is not a production guide, but a checklist of potential practices that may or may not apply to your situation. You choose the practices to implement that apply to your site. The manual was revised in 2014 to include practices for in-ground nurseries and leatherleaf ferns. Classes on Nursery BMPs can be found on our Lake County Extension Calendar or you may call Juanita to schedule a site visit and personal explanation of practices.
