Parasitic Wasps Help To Naturally Control Tomato 🍅 Hornworms

I LOVE ❤️ Homegrown Tomatoes! 🍅 Like many of you, I just hate when my plants are attacked by the dreaded Tomato Hornworms! They can devour a plant overnight and ruin your yields. So, I keep an eye on my plants daily & pick them off quickly… Unless I see one that has been visited by a parasitic wasp. Then, I just leave it be… 

In a healthy, organic garden, don’t use chemicals! Let natural predators take care of business | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio

Here’s a link to more info on this wonderful, natural predator, the Parasitic Wasp 👇🏻

Late season Tomatoes 🍅 are the best! I think we are in for a bumper crop of September, October & maybe even November Tomatoes 🍅! Organic just tastes better 😊


Fall is Coming 🍁

The Bugs Are BACK! Time For Diatomaceous Earth! (DE) | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

IF your wondering what Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is… Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a natural product made of the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. D.E. easily crumbles to a fine powder and is used for many purposes from high end skin care products, to water purification, to farming & parasite/insect control. We can even use it to control internal parasites in our own bodies!

We use and sell Diatomaceous Earth at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee | Call for curbside pickup 731-424-2206

I personally use it to kill/control fleas, ticks & ants around my home and on my pets. I also use it to worm my dogs and cats! It’s even a great organic insect dust that I use in my vegetable garden! The good stuff, as pictured above, is organic and food grade!

Anytime I can turn someone on to a useful, organic product is a good day! If you haven’t tried it yourself, give us a call 731-424-2206, We will fix you up 😊 it’s inexpensive, organic and most importantly- It Works!

Have a great day!

I ❤️ Blueberries | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ blueberries! I eat them most everyday! They are great in oatmeal, cereal, salads, smoothies, pies, Ad infinitum… Blueberries rock!!! They are also a native fruit that grows well in many areas.

Blueberries are a very rewarding plant. Beautiful, hardy & the fruit is so good! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Here in the South with our long growing season & plentiful rainfall, growing blueberries is a ‘no-brainer’… Sure, I plant them in the field or around the orchard, but I also LOVE to use them as ornamental Landscape plantings! They make great fill in plants along a sunny foundation or a backdrop for a bird feeding area or even as a screening hedge! Blueberries are Very versatile 😊

Tips for Growing –

– One of the most important things to remember when growing blueberries is that they demand a very low PH (acidic 4.5 – 5.5 or so) to grow well & thrive. So yearly you have to check PH and add an acidifier like Sulfur, Aluminum Sulfate, Ammonium Sulfate, etc… I usually opt for the organic sulfur because I am eating these 🙂 AND, I think it gives a better, sweeter taste.

I recommend using an Organic Acidifier (Sulfur) to keep the PH low. This will make for healthy, vigorous Blueberries, that just taste great! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

– If your planting Blueberries in our area, initial soil prep is key! Build up beds a little to aid in drainage. Till in some sand, peat and organic compost. Apply sulfur as needed based on PH test.

– Planting the right variety is huge!
Always choose Southern Rabbit eye varieties for success in W. TN. A few of my favorites are – Premier, Tifblue, Powder Blue & Climax. Fertilize with an organic fertilizer for fruit in late Winter/early Spring. Then I feed several times throughout the season with an organic compost tea and side dress mid season with a little composted manure. Mulching is very important too! Try crushed pine bark or pine needles. Both are acidic and work well.

– Click on this link below to learn about how to trim/prune your blueberries for better form & function! 👇🏻

PS: This is a great time to set out some blueberries! And, a great time to prune & apply compost & sulphur for PH to your existing bushes.

Good Luck! & Happy Gardening!
