Friday Radio Report – Spring has Sprung! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Another GREAT Show today with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass – The 180 Crew!

I’m on with the 180 Crew – Dan Reaves & Sea Bass- every Friday from 10-11am with ALL your gardening and Outdoor Lifestyle questions – 731-423-8101. You can TEXT in too – 731-277-5155. Listen LIVE at 101.5 WNWS – FM.

The whole world is turning green! And Yellow, Purple, White, Pink, etc… I LOVE all the Spring color!

We had LOTS of calls and texts today! Mostly normal Spring questions – when and what can I cut or trim, seeding fescue, sodding zoysia grass, planting fruit trees, etc…

One question where I think we got cut off was about getting rid of Invasive Aquatic Plants – I don’t recommend spraying herbicides in your Water Garden. Instead, physical removal is the way to go. After you get all the invasive plants out replant with some easier, less invasive aquatic plants – Dwarf Cattail, water orchid, bloody dock, bog lily, eastern rain lily, etc. Come by the nursery and pick a few out.

ALSO – come by the Red Barn in Memphis and see us at the Memphis Master Gardeners ‘Spring Fling’. We have set up a both and a small display for everyone & would love to talk to you!

We are at the Red Barn at the Agricenter in Memphis for the annual ‘Spring Fling’! We will be here today until 5 and tomorrow from 9-5pm. LOTS to see! Y’all Come! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Have a GREAT Weekend!

Like many of you, SPRING is my favorite time of the year! I am always encouraged by the crowds of people who come by to see us at the Spring Garden Show here in Jackson. I think the show always fires people up for the Spring Season and helps us all to get over all this “Cabin Fever” and focus on getting back in the Garden!
SO, with this in mind, I hope to see you in February at the West Tn. Garden Show! I have already drawn my design for the show and it’s going to be AWESOME! February will be here before we know it, so mark your calendars and smile, SPRING is coming soon!

WHAT – The West Tn. Spring Garden Show
WHERE – The Fairgrounds in downtown Jackson, Tn.
WHEN – Friday through Sunday Feb. 25th., 26th.& 27th.

Y’all Come See our Beautiful Displays, visit a while and sign up to win a FREE Fountain! See ya’ there….
