“The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings.”
 
     ~ Joyce Kilmer
 
      GET YOUR SEEDS NOW!!!
 
       WHY HEIRLOOM SEEDS?
 
Remember those tomatoes your Grandparents grew, or the ones that the farmer down the road used to sell at his roadside stand?
  
 
With the advent of hybrid seeds, the older open-pollinated varieties are getting harder to find. While the hybrids have many advantages (disease resistance, greater productivity, more uniform fruit, etc.) they just can’t match the heirlooms for taste, and isn’t that why you grow your own vegetables? With a little extra care and planning, the heirloom varieties can do just as well as the hybrids in your backyard garden.
 
This year, why not try some of the simple old fashioned varieties in your garden? We think you will be pleasantly surprised! Don’t forget to plant a few herbs, as well. They’ll complement your fresh produce nicely on the dinner table.
 
After tasting your own freshly picked herbs, you’ll readily agree to their superior taste! Once you try them, you’ll always insist on growing your own!!  
 
SEED SAVERS SEED IS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE AT CARTER’S NURSERY. CALL FOR INFO ON VARIETIES OR STOP BY AND CHECK EM OUT! IF WE DON’T HAVE THE VARIETY YOUR LOOKING FOR WE CAN ORDER THEM FOR YOU!
 
 
Daffodil Days
“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”
 
   ~ William Wordsworth, Daffodils
   
IMPORTANT MARCH DATES & GREAT TIPS 
FOR ALL THE GARDENERS OUT THERE
 
 
MARCH 8TH: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
 

   MARCH 9TH: 
Full Worm Moon:March’s Full Moon goes by “Worm Moon” because earthworm castings appear on top of the thawing ground, heralding the return of the Robins. Northern Tribes knew it as the Full Crow Moon; to the settlers; it was the Lenten Moon or the Full Sap Moon.
 
GARDENING TIP FOR THE FULL MOON : 
Use coffee grounds as mulch around acid-loving 
plants such as azaleas & blueberries
 
 
 
FULL WORM MOON 2020
 
 
MARCH 15TH : IDES OF MARCH-
            
 
Finish up the last of the 
Winter Squash from the root cellar 
by adding a cup of mashed, cooked 
squash and finely diced onion to 
corn bread batter. Yum ! ! !
 
 
 
MARCH 17TH : ST. PATRICK’S DAY – 

Put white carnations in warm water 
For a fun St. Patty’s Day decoration, 
with a few drops of green food color.
 
 
MARCH 19TH: – SPRING BEGINS TODAY !!! – 
In the spring,
at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.
-Margaret Atwood, Canadian Writer (b.1939)
 
 
MARCH 24TH : NEW MOON – 
The word “TARRAGON”
tarkhun, or “dragon”, due to the 
originates from the Arabic word 
serpentine appearance of the plant’s roots.
 
 
 
 
 
TIMELY ADVICE
Peas are a time-honored crop, great for early planting because of their love of cool weather and resistance to frost. But how early is early? Folklore may hold the answer. For a hearty growing season, tradition tells us that peas should be planted on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day.
( THAT’S WHEN MY GRAND PARENTS  ALWAYS PLANTED THEIRS). “To double up on good luck,”  also sow during the waxing Moon. Suspicious of sparrows? Hold a couple of pea seeds in your mouth while you plant without speaking- the birds will leave your crop alone. I thought my grandparents just liked peas so much; that they enjoyed sucking on them while they planted them. 🙂

 
RIPPLES MOONLIGHT
 
 
Greetings from the garden…

WOULD YOU LIKE
 “A FACE LIFT “
FOR YOUR POND? 
 
Think of what women have gone through for years to look beautiful and fresh.
We’ve used all kinds of contraptions. From creams to actual contraptions!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Contraptions are not needed to update your pond and make it look beautiful and fresh again. It just needs a little TLC. Some of our customers have had their ponds for 15-20 years. They want something newer or just different. It doesn’t take much to give it a “New” look either. We can add some bigger rocks or change out plants, widen a stream, or deepen a stream. Did you know we can even add another waterfall without having to rip anything out! If you have been thinking you wish your pond had a newer look then give us a call at the office to schedule a face lift appointment. 731-424-2206
 
HELPFUL TIP : IF YOU HAVE YOUR FACE LIFT DONE DURING A POND CLEAN OUT, IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY TO DO THEM AT THE SAME TIME.
 
 
“Each leaf,
each blade of grass
Vies for attention.
Even weeds
carry tiny blossoms
to astonish us.”

– Marianne Poloskey

 

For you DIY-ers out there, we also sell any supplies pond owners will need; to do their clean-outs their selves. Below you will find a Pond Clean-out Check List to help you along. If you’re not sure what size filters you need, we can help you. Just come by or call! Also like us on Facebook & follow Mark’s page for great details and tips.



‘SPRING’ POND CLEAN-OUT CHECK LIST  

 

 

1. Fish Net – Before you drain your pond for the spring clean-out, you’ll need to catch and relocate your fish into a holding tank with a bubbler. Preferably in the shade. Buying a good quality fish net will help you do this without injuring your fish during the catch and release.

2. Planting Pots – Spring clean-out is a great time to thin and divide plants that have grown out of bounds or crowded a pot. Make sure you have some aquatic plant pots handy so you can re-pot and share your new plants with other water gardeners or expand them to other areas of your pond.

3.Extra Gravel – After the freeze and thaw of winter, you’ll inevitably find rocks and gravel that have shifted, exposing bare liner. With an extra bag or two of gravel, you can cover exposed liner in a jiffy.

4. Lily Tabs – Take advantage of the water-free accessibility of water lilies, lotus, and other plants that may need to be fertilized, by having a container of lily tabs on hand when you’re doing your pond clean-out.

5. Container for Plant Debris – Grab an old plastic plant pot or bucket so you can easily dispose of any debris that you gather from the pond bottom or from dead plant matter.

6. Rubber Gloves and Boots – Spring clean-outs can be cold, wet, and messy. Arming yourself with boots and gloves will go a long way toward making this chore much less unpleasant.

7. Fish Container and Bubbler Pump – A large tub will be needed so you can have a roomy place to keep your fish during the clean-out. A Bubbler Pump will help keep oxygen levels up for your fish and reduce stress.

8. Net to Cover the Fish Container – Fish, especially large Koi, jump, and they may very well jump right out of the container that you have set up for them. Be sure to cover it with a net that is pulled tight across the container to prevent them from jumping.

9. Pump and Discharge Pipe – To drain the water out of the pond, you will need a pump and some discharge pipe. It’s OK to use your pond pump, but even better if you have an extra pump to lessen the wear and tare on your pond pump. About 2,000 GPH, depending on the size of your pond, will do the trick.

10. High Pressure Nozzle – Use a pressure nozzle on your garden hose to dislodge debris and algae from the rocks.

11. De-Toxifier – you should always use De-Toxifier to Filter and Purify the water going into the newly filled pond before you put the fish back in.

12. Expanding Foam – Expanding foam may need a bit of a touch up in some areas. Be prepared with a can of it just in case.

13. New Filter Mats – Filter mats should be replaced approximately every 3 years. If you think it might be time, be prepared by purchasing replacements prior to your clean-out.

14. Pruners – Part of a spring clean-out is pruning back dead plant material from the previous season. Make sure you have a good pair of pruners or scissors to get the job done.

15. Plastic Rake – You can rake the leaves right out of your pond with a small plastic (child’s) rake. The plastic lessens the chance of damaging the liner and the small size makes it easier to maneuver in tight spots better than an adult size rake.

 

16. Beneficial Bacteria – Always follow up your pond clean-out with Beneficial Bacteria.

Break Out The Flip Flops, It’s Late December… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | West Tennessee

White Christmas? I think not! In fact Christmas was a beautiful Spring day! 😎 70’ish degrees. Perfect for a cookout! All the doors and windows open kind of day.

It has been so warm. The last week has felt like an early Spring…

There’s one thing for certain when it comes to Winter weather in the south! If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute, things are about to change!😊

Tennessee USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. Spring is Coming!

I’m not one to waste nice weather! I’ve been planning for next years Displays & Gardens! I can’t wait!!! I’ve been planning some great events too! The events will be complete and listed on the website and here on the blog by the 1st week in January. ❤️ 2020 is going to be Awesome!

2019 is about to leave the building! 2020 is Coming! Are you ready?

No matter the weather, I hope you’ve had a wonderful Holiday Season! The new year approaches… 2020 is going to be YUGE!💥

PS: Keep a coat handy…

The Last Friday Report Of 2019

The New Year is Coming! Fast! In fact this is the last Friday of 2019! Pretty crazy that it has gone by so quickly… But, it’s true that “time flies”!

2019 is on the way out! What does 2020 hold for YOU???

A good friend once told me the older you get the faster the time flies. It took me a while to understand that, but now I think I do. In a simple way, the older we get, the less time we have in our future… The demand is still there, but the supply is dwindling. So time becomes more and more valuable! That makes sense in my mind.
So along those lines, 2020 is coming fast & I want to make the very best I can of every moment! 😊

Im already working on my 2020 Events Calendar for Carters Nursery (I’m very excited for next year!).

What do you want in 2020? Do you set goals? Do you make “Resolutions”?

I don’t normally do New Years “Resolutions” but I’m considering a couple this year… IF I do, I will post them for all to see 😊 It may help my accountability to any resolution I make? We will see…

Good luck! & Heres to a GREAT 2020!

– See y’all next year!
