While planning out my gardening needs, I thought that if I could only grow apples, I'd save a lot in feeding the horses (I like to cut up an apple and put in with their grain).

But, I always thought apples were cold only. Turns out, you can grow apples in FL, so I'm going to give it a try. After a LOT of research, the following link is the best info I found for growing them in FL. If you are looking to try it also, it should be helpful.

I got to look into that.
I currently have a few pineapples growing. I put them on one side of the house so they don't get cooked by the sun.
I'd like to have several fruit trees growing. I have a mango tree. and a grapefruit tree in a pot.
An apple tree would be a good addition.

Same here. The trick is, you have to have a couple of variety apple trees to cross-pollinate, but that link will tell you the specifics.

I too am growing some pineapples on the side of the house. I have a tangerine tree already, but want to get a navel orange tree, a banana tree, and a pear tree going...along with one Tropic Sweet Apple tree and two Dorsett Golden Apple trees.

I also have aloe and roses growing along the side of the house, for medicinals.

My big goal is to start a full-blown garden with a variety of vegetables this spring, but I may not get it all prepped in time. I'll have a smaller garden in the entryway, around a small fish pond, for culinary/medicinal herbs.

On the trees, I'm getting those in 10 gallon buckets and planting. For the garden, I'm getting already rooted plants for easy planting.
