Welcome! My name is Ryan and Florida Native Garden (Plants and Critters) is where I enjoy writing about my gardening adventures, experiences in nature, critter encounters, native plant profiles and more. There is always something fascinating to see in a native wildlife garden or while I am out exploring our beautiful Florida. I am a member of the Serenoa Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society and reside in Sarasota County.

Our small meadow of Gaillardia is a beautiful alternative to turfgrass
