GET A WATER TRAY WITH WHEELS. If you plan on having a large potted plant, you absolutely need a water tray with wheels. Ideally, you want it in a spot with bright light throughout the year but that is not always an option. You’ll want to move it over a foot or two as the seasons change to follow the light. It comes handy when you need to clean around it or if you need to arrange the room around for a special dinner or activity.
ALL PLANTS LOSE THEIR LEAVES. You will see drastic leaf drop during the winter time as the sun light hours are much shorter and the plant will drop leaves to conserve energy. Likewise, remove brown leaves so they are not robbing the plant of energy; once it’s brown, it’s not coming back to life.
PLANTS WILL DRY OUT IN WINTER. The plants will dry out faster during the winter. You may notice that the water runs right through the pot at this time. You may have to change your water schedule by watering more frequently but cutting back on the volume of water at each application. You can apply a water retaining supplement in the soil by taking a pencil and poking a hole ¾’s of the way down, fill it a quarter full and cover with soil. The polymers will expand so don’t over do it. Test the chemical in a bowl of water first and note how much it expands before you add it to your pot.
CHECK FOR PEST. Pest such as mealy bugs and scale will attack your indoor and potted plants as well as outdoor. Scout under leaves if you see a decline in your plant and you’ve been watering properly. “Birds nest” mushroom is an indicator that you may be watering too much. Flies are another indicator that it’s too wet. You can pick off the pest if it’s minimal or you can spray with horticulture oil or Neem oil.
NOTE THE SUN ROTATION IN YOUR HOME. When choosing a spot for your plant, take mental notes on where the sunlight hits during the seasons. Generally speaking, in North East Florida, the sunlight will be most ambient on the East and South facing windows during the winter time. During the Summer time, you can get away with putting plants in all the windows; but reserve the West and North side for plants that don’t need direct sunlight or only require a few hours of sunlight per day. Conversely, leave plants that need longer hours of sun for the South and East facing windows.
LASTLY, FERTILIZE EVERY 3-6 MONTHS with a well balanced indoor fertilizer. Chelated Iron is a good way to green up your leaves fast, but it works best as a supplement.

Nursery has some of the most unique and beautiful plants. Garron is amazing! The staff are beyond helpful and patient answering questions and making even the most inexperienced gardener feel at ease and confident. Love this place!
Well organized, nice selection of plants and trees. Employees were friendly and very helpful. Very good variety of landscaping needs including large rocks down to small pebbles in varied colors.Definitely worth a gardeners visit.
We purchased 3, 15 gallon Queen Palm trees from Liberty Landscape, Patrick assisted us. They were delivered and planted by Jeremy, who did a fantastic job. We thought we knew where we wanted to put them until they arrived. Jeremy was willing to move them around until we got just the right view. We can’t thank Jeremy enough for all his help in planting the palms in our yard, explaining to us the watering and care instructions. We highly recommend Patrick and Jeremy at Liberty!
John Bell used his masterful fork lift skills to place a large stone we had purchased at Liberty for our garden. He was patient and helpful as we decided exactly how it should be situated. We knew that due to its weight we would not be able to move it again, so John made sure that we were satisfied before he left even though it was late afternoon and his last delivery of the day.We have worked with John in the past and he is one of the reasons we return to Liberty for our gardening needs.
I have used Liberty Landscaping on 2 paver projects now and I can say that I am happy with their service and pricing. Jeremy is very easy to work with and tries very hard to be accommodating to the clients needs. I will continue to use them and recommend them to my neighbors and friends.
Fair price, solid advice, and fantastic service. Jeremy rocks! He was most careful in planting the grapefruit tree, and also provided insights in the care of the tree as he was doing so. Liberty Landscape is fortunate having such quality representatives of their enterprise.
Everything about ordering online was easy. Friendly phone call to confirm preferred delivery date and delivery driver Jeremy was on time, was respectful and polite, and he expertly delivered the mulch exactly where I asked it be placed. Have ordered before and will order again! -Michelle in Callahan
we purchased a 30 gallon east Palatka holly and scheduled delivery and installation. Jeremy showed up on schedule and did an excellent job of installing our tree. He explained how to care for the tree and also explained the process he was going through to install this large tree. We are extremely satisfied with our new addition. Ask for Jeremy and you won't be disappointed!
This is the first time I have purchased and had a delivery from Liberty on mainstreet location in Jacksonville. The online process was easy to complete. They worked with me to accommodate the schedule I was working in, and their delivery person, Jeremy was personable and professional. Usually, I purchase from big chain stores, but this experience has changed my mind.
