September ZOOM Presentation:  Hurricane Planting, by Franco D’Ascanio

Franco D'Ascanio

Our speaker, Franco D’Ascanio, President of D’Asign Source, Marathon, FL and D’Asign Source Botanicals, Loxahatchee, FL will focus on “Hurricane Planting” to discuss gardeners’ needs before and after a hurricane.  As a Keys’ native and resident, Mr. D’Ascanio has a wealth of knowledge and experience in our tropical environment. He believes that outdoor living is a true extension of the home and his companies embody that belief.  They offer a variety of services including landscaping and a garden center with exotic palms, salt tolerant plants and much more.  His company’s longevity in the Keys is a testament to his knowledge of what works in terms of planting and care, especially with the occurrence of hurricanes.
