Congratulations For 65 Years Of Gardening Love 💐❤️

I had the honor to speak to a wonderful Garden Club earlier this week. I prepared a Keynote Presentation on “Low Maintenance, Custom Water Features” for the ladies, complete with handouts, prop’s & a power point projection show… As much as they enjoyed learning more about Water Features, I think I got an even bigger treat! This was their 65th Anniversary as a Garden Club & it was the hosts Birthday! Happy Birthday DD 💥 We all had Lots of FUN!

What a great group of ladies! So much positive energy & love for the Garden! Congratulations to the Evergreen Garden Club for 65 years of Gardening! This is just the beginning!

The Food was Awesome!

Valentines was part of the theme, and the food was plentiful.

Many of the members of the club are friends and/or clients, so I felt right at home. It’s always nice to speak to an engaged audience, and all the members LOVE the hobby of Gardening!

 

I tried to get everyone in the shot, but there were so many in attendance I still missed a few ❤️ What a great morning speaking for the Evergreen Garden Club on their 65th. Anniversary! Here’s to Many More! 💥

“I have found, through years of practice, that people garden in order to make something grow; to interact with nature; to share, to find sanctuary, to heal, to honor the earth, to leave a mark. Through gardening, we feel whole as we make our personal work of art upon our land.”

   ~ Julie Moir Messervy

Thanks again to the wonderful Ladies of the Evergreen Garden Club! Have a Great Day! Spring is Coming! 💐

This week we had several great calls/questions!

  • Leyland cypress problems! Dead spots, etc… Why and what can I do? This has become all to common. This is a big reason that many are advising against planting Leyland Cypress all together. Disease has become common among the Leyland. Especially Bot and/or Seiridium Canker. Limbs turn yellow to grey and/or completely die. You can normally find sunken cankers oozing sap around the main stem. You can’t spray to treat this disease! You can only try to keep them healthy and happy… Including irrigating them during dry weather. Drought stress is VERY bad for these trees.
  • Do we still have flowers and hanging baskets? YES! We are loaded with beautiful flowers 🙂 Y’all Come!
  • AND the #1 subject today, was of course – Tomorrows POND TOUR!

WHAT is the Moonlight Luau? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I was just talking to a couple at the Nursery who bought some Pond Tour tickets. They are excited about going on the Tour! They want a Water Garden of their own and are hoping to get some ideas on the Pond Tour 🙂 That made me happy too! I LOVE it when folks do their homework and learn about the possibility’s before I come to meet with them to design the Water Garden of their dreams! They have been wanting to go on the Pond Tour for several years now and FINALLY have a free weekend to attend. As they were leaving I said, don’t miss the Moonlight Luau, it’s gonna be fun! They looked puzzled… WHAT is the Moonlight Luau they asked?

The Ponds and Gardens at the Nursery are Beautiful at night! We open the gates at 8pm. for the Moonlight Luau! Landscape lighting, Tiki Torches, Live music & Delicous food await! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The ‘Moonlight Luau’ is an appreciation dinner. It’s a Party under the stars. It’s a magical night in the garden with tiki’s & lighting and glowing pools and sparkling waterfalls… LIVE music! AND – Did I mention food? YES! The main course is Kalua Pork! Hawaiian Style!

 

The evolution of a Kalua Pig. Fresh fruits & veggies along with fresh banana leaves give the meat a very unique and delicious taste!

This party is very special to me. It’s my way of saying ‘Thanks’ to all the homeowners who have allowed us all to tour their gardens AND to all the people who contributed to this very worthwhile cause.

Good food, music, friends & family are what always make this a special night 😊

PLUS – The ‘Moonlight Luau’ is FREE with your ticket! Some buy the ticket just for the Luau 🙂

Happy Pondering! I’ll see y’all at the Moonlight Luau!
