2021 is Coming! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We are at the end of 2020! As the last few days count down, I find myself doing what I always do this time of the year… Planning! Getting ready for next season! I’m hopeful that the coming spring will bring a more normal season for us all! Last years entire event schedule was ruined by COVID-19… NO workshops, no pond tours, no seminars, nothing got to happen. So, I’m really excited and hopeful, that things are going to be much different in this new year!

Every year I sit down and plan events with a fresh new calendar. This new year will be no different! If you fail to plan, your planning to fail! I’m looking forward to a better 2021!

We also plan to eat our traditional New Years Meal! Hog Jowl, black eyed peas, cabbage, greens, cornbread & more! These old traditions must live on!

I LOVE our New Years tradition of eating dinner with the family. We always have fried Hog Jowl, Black Eyed Peas, Turnip Greens & Cornbread! Plus much more … I’m ready to Welcome in 2021!

In any case, 2021 Is Coming, ready or not… Be ready 😊

“Giving My Water Garden A Facelift”

SATURDAY, APRIL 10TH 2010, 9am-2pm.

We will talk about and show how easy it is to “Re-do” an existing water feature! Maybe you have an existing pond that you installed or had installed for you and now you’re ready to expand. Maybe you want to add a stream to your pond or add a waterfall to a spitter pond. Maybe you have issues with your existing rock work and want to give it a whole new look. In this class we will show how easy it is to “Rebuild” an existing feature or just create a new look for it.  

 We will also do a Complete Pond Cleanout during the class as a continuation of the Aquatic Expo maintenance day that was rained out. I hope you all can make it.

12TH ANNUAL PARADE OF PONDS ! ! ! !

EVERY BODY LOOK . . . NEW DATE THIS YEAR ! ! !

JUNE 5TH, SATURDAY & JUNE 6TH, SUNDAY 2010.

Every year we host the Parade of Ponds for the JMCHS. We support them because of what they do for our community. They help get lost, injured and mistreated animals off the streets of Madison County. They try to help rescue any animals in need. But to do this it takes money. So we have decided to help donate funds to them to make this possible. And what better way to raise funds for charity than to have a Water-Garden, Tour.

Your donation gives you a chance to get out with your family and friends and see some beautiful gardens and enjoy the day. Then later that evening you can come out to the nursery and enjoy some good food and Live Music. If you didn’t see all of the Ponds that day you can finish them on Sunday, or visit your favorites again.

This is our yearly benefit for the Jackson Madison County Humane Society. 100% of ALL money raised goes to the Humane Society! Come on out and help raise some much needed funding for our local Humane Society and enjoy a UNIQUE experience!

TICKETS WILL BE $10 EACH, CHILDREN 12 & UNDER ARE FREE!

“Attracting Butterfly’s to you Garden”

The class will be presented by Celeste Bursi of Butterflies in Memphis!
