Friday radio report – Spring Fever is setting in! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Well, the show today was a LOT of FUN! Dan Reaves and Sea Bass are the BEST! LOTS of calls & if I learned anything today, it’s that we are ALL ready for Spring! I’m going to list a few questions below from todays show with a little info and a basic answer. If you need more info, feel free to give me a call at the Nursery – 731-424-2206.

  • Will there be any Azalea damage from the cold weather? Answer – Probably. We got COLD! For quite a few days in a row too… Sub zero a few nights, so I expect to see some damage across the board. Especially with Encores. -Fertilize in mid to late February with Milorganite and keep your eye on them. You’ll know whats up soon enough.
  • When can I sow fescue grass seed? Answer – Late February is a great time to seed Tall Fescue. Take time now to pull a soil sample. Apply lime as needed. Make sure to aerate the soil before seeding to improve germination & always fertilize.
  • Its about time to start cleaning up & trimming the roses. Mid to late February depending on weather.
  • Apply dormant oil to your fruit trees. Clean-up fallen leafs and debris and prune as needed.
  • Its time to fertilize your pecan trees. Make sure to get a fertilizer for pecans with added zinc. Pecans needs zinc. Clean up leaves and debris from below the tree! Very important for pest control.
  • Can I clean out my Koi Pond now? Answer – Yes you can start cleaning your ponds up right away. Trimming back plants, cleaning out leaves and debris, restacking any fallen stones, touching up gravel and mulch, replace light bulbs and/or fixtures, etc… Clean out filters and water change &/or a full cleanout. Inspect pumps and plumbing, etc…

Again, it was a great show! Hats off to Dan Reaves! and of course – Sea Bass and all the fine folks at 101.5 FM!

Tune in again next week to 101.5fm. on Fridays from 10-11am. and call or text us YOUR Gardening or Outdoor Lifestyle questions!

Have a GREAT weekend & Happy Pondering!


PS: Dan & Sea Bass are out at Reggie’s BBQ doing the Super Bowl! Everyone’s invited 🙂
