Mayday, Mayday – May Day | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

WOW! Maybe it’s just me, but this year is flying by…. Today is MAY 1st.! AKA: ‘May Day’…

In the old days as April rolled to an end, people would gather flowers and candy 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.


Kids dancing around the ‘Maypole’.

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 🙂
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, etc. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

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