The Florida Master Gardener Program is an outreach program composed of UF/IFAS Extension certified volunteers who are trained to provide research-based horticultural education to Florida residents. 

The Sumter County Master Gardeners programs are free. Advance registration is not required. Their expertise is about flowers and gardening in our area, but unfortunately not particularly about native plants.
