Q: Do You Want Your Landscape & Garden Plants to Keep Performing into Late Summer & Fall?

We are past the 4th of July now and its getting HOT! Your plants and flowers have been doing great, but now they are looking a bit overgrown, and… Tired? I want my Flowering Plants and my veggies to keep on keeping on till frost! A question we get a lot at Carters Nursery is – What do I need to do to keep my Plants Performing through the dog days and into Fall? That is a great question to ask! I’ll show you what I use.

Do You Want Your Landscape & Garden Plants to Keep Performing into Late Summer & Fall? Try This! | Organic Potting Soil & Organic Fertilizers | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I use a lot of Fox Farm products in my Landscape and in my edible garden. In my opinion, Happy Frog Potting Soil is a must! It very balanced and has all the things you need – It is amended with soil microbes that help improve root efficiency and encourage nutrient uptake, as well as earthworm castings, bat guano, and aged forest products. I use it as a top dressing that i work into my garden soil, a potting medium and as a mulch in some annual beds. | Organic Potting Soil & Organic Fertilizers | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This pushes HUGE blooms! It really works!

We also carry a GREAT line of Liquid Fertilizers, as well as bagged Granular Fertilizers.

We even carry Soil Acidifiers, Garden Lime and Organic Pest Control products.

Come on out and get what your Garden and your Landscape needs to Thrive through the seasons!

Viva La’ Garden Loca!

Using All These Leaves 🍁 🍂 Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN 38305

I have been asked a few times on the radio lately about composting, so I went back in the archives and pulled this up. This was 1st published over 10 years ago!
A big blowing storm just came through and left plenty of leaves 🍁 to get us all started…

“Fall is one of my Favorite seasons! Cooler weather, fall planting and gardening and all the great family gatherings and food are wonderful. Fall is also a GREAT time to start a Compost Pile. All those leaves, plants and grasses that you have to cut back and all of the upcoming holiday food scraps add up too a great supply of usable components in a compost pile!
Starting a Compost pile is quick , easy and won’t cost you anything to get started! Compost is one of nature’s best mulches and soil amendments and you can use it instead of chemical fertilizers. Compost improves soil structure, texture and increases the soil’s water-holding capacity. Compost loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils to retain water. The organic matter in compost provides food for microorganisms, which in turn keeps the soil in a healthy, balanced condition. Nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus are produced naturally by the feeding of microorganisms, so few if any soil amendments will need to be added.

Once the process is complete you can use this free resource as mulch, soil amendments, top dressing for your lawn, to make compost tea for veggies & more. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s easy to get started .

-Bag your grass clippings or mulch up all those leaves for the compost pile!

-Save those kitchen scraps and add them to the compost pile. Kitchen scraps are typically high in nitrogen, which helps heat up the compost pile and speed up the composting process. Egg shells, coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable peels and scraps are good candidates for the compost pie. But DON’T add meat, grease or other animal products!

– With a compost pile, bigger is often better. Heat builds up with a bigger pile, but you don’t want to get much bigger than about 3 feet by 3 feet, if it’s too big it can be hard to work around. Multiple piles may be in order .

– Aerate your compost! If you are composting with a pile, or in a static (non-tumbling) compost bin, be sure to mix up the contents so that the pile gets oxygen and can break down effectively. Turn it with a pitch fork from time to time .

– Don’t let the compost completely dry out. A compost pile needs moisture to keep the composting process active , BUT , don’t keep it too wet.

– Too much of any one material will slow down the composting process. If you have all leaves, all grass clippings or an overload of any other single type of material, it can throw off the balance of the pile. It’s best to keep a balanced mix of green (nitrogen) and brown (carbon) materials.

When ready, this compost will be wonderful for the whole garden!

Good Luck and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!”
