1 Dozen Days To Go! Have YOU Carved A Jack-O-Lantern Yet? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are 12 days away from Halloween 🎃 We LOVE to carve pumpkins 🎃 in our house! In fact, we will carve at least 1 Jack-O-Lantern every day from now to ‘All Hallows Eve’… Think “12 days of Halloween” 👻

Here are a few of my favorites. Some are ours, some were done by others & some are just  deco Jack-O-Lanterns that we display every year. To me, they just set the mood for the season 😊

Get as creative as you want! Pumpkin carving is good for the soul!😊 This was carved by a very creative young lady at our recent Fall Fest! 

Have some fun this weekend and carve a Pumpkin 🎃 ‘Tis’ The Season!

Pond Tip : Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

These last couple of weeks I have been blogging about proactive things you can do to help keep your Water Garden clean and your Koi healthy over the Fall & Winter.
Things like  –

  •  Cutting your aquatic plants back
  • Installing pond netting
  • Watching your skimmer more closely
  • Switching to Cool Temp Koi Food
  • Plus – There’s another very important thing you can do to really keep your ecosystem active and working well – Switch to Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria Now! 

Change to Cool Season Water Treatments now and it will help to keep your your pond clean and you’re Koi healthy. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria is available at Carters Nursery & It keeps on working when the plants and fish aren’t active, and it really helps the quality of your Pond Water! It is extremely effective at reducing sludge, dead and decaying leaves and plants, built up fish waste & excess nutrients. These things cause poor water quality, reduced water clarity and can have catastrophic effects on your Koi & other pond fishes health. Stay ahead of the game and use Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria! You will thank me later 😊

Happy Pondering!

Hump Day Koi Fix | It’s Fall. Remember The Rule Of 60! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Fall is in full swing! The sun is setting earlier every day & the temps are falling… And soon, Jack Frost 🥶  will be paying us a visit… The Koi have eaten well this year & have put on a good bit of fat to get them through the Cool Season ahead. Now is the time that many of my clients and fellow Koi enthusiasts start asking a very important question…

– When do I stop feeding regular food and start feeding Cool Season Koi Food?

My Answer- Remember the rule of 60!

When the water temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit you should switch to a Lower Protein, Cool Season Koi Food. We like to call it the ‘Rule Of 60’… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Switching to a Cool Temperature Koi Food is very important for the health of your Koi!

 

Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer. Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. Pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

 

So to wrap it up, check your water temp (via a floating thermometer) & when your water temp drops to 60 degrees, you should transition to Cool Season Koi Food. That’s the “Rule of 60”… 😉

Viva La’ Fall!

Happy Pondering 🤔
