What it's like to move to FLORIDA

Across the sandy Florida peninsula-- which juts seaward from the mainland more than 400 miles-- there is an invisible line that divides the state into two distinct halves. It crosses the state about a third of the way down the peninsula, roughly from Daytona Beach on the East Coast to Tarpon Springs on the West Coast.

Your first step should be to eliminate the moles-- best done by depriving them of their insect food. Use a good grub-killing chemical in the area where you will be planting lilies this fall.
