Is It May 1st. Already? Happy May Day! AND – TGIF! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Saying goodbye to April is sad, BUT – Hello May! Here’s a reprint from May Day’s past…

In the old days as April rolled to an end, people would begin gathering flowers and candies and other goodies to put in May baskets to hang on the doors of friends, neighbors and loved ones on May 1, aka; May Day.


“May Day” can mean a few things – Like – Mayday, Mayday! ie; Help!!!

May-day – noun – 1. an international radio distress signal used by ships and aircraft.


OR it could be an age old celebration of Spring moving into Summer – May Day dates way back to ancient times and is traditionally celebrated with dancing and singing and feasting and the like 🙂

Kids dancing around the ‘Maypole’.

In Hawaii May 1st. is called Lei Day 🌺 They eat traditional foods and celebrate Island culture. And yes, every one gets Lei’d! 🙂 Let’s go to Hawaii! 😊

But for me, May 1st. is the date that I use as my planting guide! It’s the date that I start planting in earnest. Annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, melons, etc.!!! It’s on!

May 1st. is a GREAT date to start planting Annuals, Perennials, Vegetables, Herbs, Aquatic Plants, Roses, etc. We are LOADED with Plants for you at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN


We had a long Winter & a cool wet Spring so far, but fear not! May is where it all changes! 🙂 Happy “May Day” & a Happy Gardening Season!
