Sunday Reflections… Easter Sunday “He is Risen”!

Friday Radio Report – Good Friday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Another GREAT Show today with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass – The 180 Crew! Thanks to all that tuned in and called in!

I’m on with the 180 Crew with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass- every Friday from 10-11am with ALL your gardening and Outdoor Lifestyle questions – 731-423-8101. You can TEXT in too – 731-277-5155. Listen LIVE at 101.5 WNWS – FM.

I had several calls and texts today on the show. A mixed bag really – here’s a quick rundown…

  • Spraying fruit trees? Most all are already in bloom now – so wait till the blooms are all gone (you can harm pollinators and contaminate fruit during this time). After all the petals have fallen choose a good all-in 1 mix (Organic is my preference) and follow the label guidelines.
  • When can I plant a Japanese Maple? Right NOW! it’s a great time to plant. Plant the tree a little high and don’t use a heavy fertilizer, try Milorganite. And remember to mulch.
  • We had a guy ask about Hardwood Bark Mulch – is it good? What color is best? YES, it’s a good mulch. Make sure its hammered and aged. I prefer brown mulch but some like black. Use your judgement based on the colors of your home, landscape etc. – Whatever YOU like best is perfect 🙂
  • WHEN is our Spring Fest. & Water Garden Workshop? It’s Saturday, April 21st.! It’s FREE! Y’all Come!

    And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

This is ‘Good Friday’ and Easter Weekend! I hope everyone is able to be with the ones you love and has time to reflect on our many blessings. I plan on doing just that!

Thanks and have a GREAT Easter Weekend!
