Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

What a BEAUTIFUL Day!!! 🌞🌼 What do you do on an Sunday in the Spring, when you own a nursery, with limited help and beau·coup plants 🪴? You water 🚿 and then you water 🚿 some more… And in between, you clean and cut back and fertilize, ad infinitum… But, on a day like today, its not an awful deal…

“Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily suggested the thought that hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”

~ Charlotte Bronte’

I’m going inside… Been a long day 😊

My Porch Plants | Porchscaping | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I was just trimming my plants back a little bit today… Its always a good practice when we’re around the 4th. of July… They just get heavy and tired and need a little TLC 😊 I just thought I would share some of my favorites and how they look after a little mid season trim…

A mix of colors and texture for sure, with some aquatic plants thrown in for good measure.
I’ve still got to trim these Pitcher Plants back a bit, but I just love them! When your plants eat bugs for you, ya just got to love em! 😊
Just look at that bloom. These have lived in this container for a few years now, that’s why we’re seeing this prolific blossoming this season…
I’ve even started using Hydrangeas in Porch Planters. This ‘Limelight’ is showing out 😊 Now I’m going to add some Oakleaf’s to round it out.

The heat is on! It’s time to watch your garden grow 😊


Have a good week!
