Pond cleaning season is coming quick! Give me a call at the Nursery to get your name on the schedule to insure a clean pond in time for the Spring!

Friday Radio Report | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Wow! What a great show today!!! It felt great to be back home and it felt great to back on the air LIVE with the guys – Dan Reaves’s & Sea Bass!

The show started with an interview of Milan Police Chief – Bobby Sellers. He was in the studio to give a report on the Casey McDaniel case. This case dates back to August of 1996! Casey disappeared after a church function in 1996 and has never been seen since. By all reports she was a very nice, happy, positive 14 year old girl. This case shook the entire area & has recently gotten a break – Pete Hill was arrested as a suspect in the case & is in prison awaiting trial. They are still working this case & asking for anyone with more info to please come forward. If you have any info please call Milan PD at 731-686-3309.

After Chief Sellers left we started taking Gardening and Outdoor Living calls and texts and there were many…

  •  I gave a full report of my Anniversary trip with my wife. We did a full week of backroad travel and exploration in our beautiful home state 😊 We had LOTS of Fun and came back all charged up!
  • we also talked late Summer Gardening.
  • How to make a raised bed for better drainage.
  • Popular shade trees with a focus on Oaks and Maples.
  • Keeping your Leland Cypress watered well to avoid drought stress.
  • And our upcoming Summer Seminar –  ‘Stay cool with container water features’. Saturday August 18th. 9-11am.  It’s FREE! Y’all come!

    There’s still time to get your Water Feature designed and built in time for the Fall weather. Give me a call. | 731-424-2206

Get out and enjoy the rest of the Summer before it’s gone! It’s flying by folks 😊

Thanks for all the calls and comments!

– Happy Pondering!
