Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Today I got a cool Facebook memory of a Garden Show we did 9 or 10 years ago that really took me back. Back in the “Old Days” we would do 3-5 Spring Garden Shows every year. It was just the way things were done, and I loved it! I planned them very carefully, I worked up scale drawings, then hand picked plants and stone etc. etc. Just like it was a Project that would transform a real Landscape! But in reality, we would spend 4-5 days building it, 3 days manning the display booth & then 2-3 more days tearing it down and putting things back into inventory! WOW 😳 It was A LOT of investment and a LOT of work! But, we were able to shown people what we could do! And we won many awards for our efforts. Best of Show (many times). Best Waterfall, River of Dreams. Best Designer. Most Creative Design. Etc.

Now days you can look at my Facebook page, or my Pinterest page, or my Instagram page… Or come to my 7 acre Aquatic Garden Center with Pond’s and Waterfalls and Koi 😊 Most any day of the week!

So for Educating the Consumer, it’s much more Awesome! But, sometimes it’s nice to look back at how we used to do things and smile 😊

Here’s to cool Throwbacks. Sometimes progress is a good thing 😊

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

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

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!

Filed under: General Blog Entry's | Tags: ,

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.
