Hump Day Koi Fix | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

If there is one thing I love the most about having a Water Garden, it’s feeding my Koi! It’s a daily ritual that I just can’t do without 😊 So I thought I would share this moment with you today. A little Hump Day Koi Fix!

What’s The Best Time To Feed My Koi? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Question: What’s the best time to feed my Koi? 

People ask me that all the time! The answer is a pretty simple one… After the water temperature has stabilized in the spring and conditions are right, most anytime is a good time to feed your Koi! ❤️ The #1 thing not to do – Don’t overfeed! Feed a little at a time and let them consume it, then feed a little more IF they are still eating. I feed mine in the morning and then again in the evening. They are waiting on me both times 😊

One of the most enjoyable parts of the day is feeding my Koi! Remember – Feed em’ high quality Koi Food! Available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Check our last evenings feeding session 👇🏻

t

So to wrap it up – don’t overfeed & enjoy the moment. Feeding your Koi is one of the many rewards of having a Pond! 

Happy Pondering!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s a bit warmer in the Koi house so they get to start eating a little earlier than Koi who live in an outdoor Pond. I know you all are ready to get back to feeding them again, but it’s not quite warm enough yet… So I though you might enjoy a glimpse of what’s to come 😊

Spring is coming quick! Are you ready?

Who’s ready to enjoy a ‘Moment of Zen’ by their pond again? 😊 | Just Remember the Rule of 50 & be ready, because Spring is Coming!

Have a Zen filled Monday & a GREAT week!

Holiday Gifts For Your Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE my Koi! Just as much as my other pets… I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc…

Our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about your Koi? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

PS:

The countdown continues.

Summer Pond Maintenance | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

My pond has been exceptionally beautiful this season! LOTS of lily blooms, the lotus have been showing out & there is so much lush foliage.

My Water Garden plants have been so beautiful this year! But to keep them looking great they need a little TLC | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

One of the #1 things to do right now is keep your lilies & lotus fed (fertilized) to keep them performing into late summer and fall. It’s very simple to do! Come by and grab a container of Aquatic Plant Fertilizer Tabs. One of us will show you how to poke em’ down into the root zone of the plant – Done!

AND #2 is to keep your aquatic plant growth in check! All this Hot weather has them growing like weeds 😊

  •  selectively trim marginal aquatics to keep in check and to promote strong compact growth.
  • remove yellowed unattractive Lilly pads & spent blooms to Promote new growth and bloom.
  • Keep Waterfalls & streams free and clear of excessive plant growth and debris! A plant dam will cause a leak every time!

Koi Love to be hand fed! If yours aren’t eating from your hand yet, try feeding at the same time daily and have patience, it takes a little while to win them over, but once you do, it will be worth the effort 😊 Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

– Enjoy your Koi! Feed them quality Koi food, but don’t over feed! Over feeding can cause water quality issues…

 

A little touch up now will pay dividends for the rest of the season! Get out there and enjoy 😉
