Saturday Chore List… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

What a BEAUTIFUL sunrise this morning! It rained a little last night but it was over before dawn and it feels GREAT outside 🙂

Up with the sun! It’s time to get out in the garden & embrace the Spring! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

If you haven’t already started on your chore list, Saturday is a great day to get started! Here’s a chore list pre-made –

  • Trim the shrubs & ornamental trees – holly’s, boxwoods, barberries, crepe myrtles, etc. (NOT azaleas yet)
  • Weeding! Flower beds, along edges, etc…
  • Clean-up! Rake and get up left over leaves, weeds etc…
  • Fertilize your shrubs – I use milorganite & espoma organic.
  • Fruit trees haven’t bloomed yet… Apply Dormant oil now if you haven’t already.
  • If you have a vegetable garden its a great time to till in some compost and manure to make ready!
  • Freshen up the look with mulch!
  • If you have a fescue lawn its time to aerate & overseed.
  • If you have a Water Garden – it’s time for a Spring clean-out!
  • It’s also a great time to power-wash sidewalks, driveways & patios.
  • Is your mower ready? Oil change? Sharpen blades? String trimmer ready to go?

In my experience, it’s good to be proactive when it comes to the Garden! You can fall behind so fast… Then it’s almost too much to handle! So I hope this very basic list of things to-do helps you get started for Spring 🙂

We have a full line of Garden Supplies, including Heirloom Seeds, Organic Fertilizers, Insect control, Dormant oil & more. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

At the end of a day working in the garden, I fire up the grill and ice down some drinks 🙂 Life is Good!

Have a GREAT weekend! & Happy Pondering!
