Happy New Year! It’s my first show of the 2019 season & as always, it was FUN with the 180’ Crew!!!

LOTS of texts about gardening today –

  •  Plants to prevent insects? Marigolds, mums, lavender, rosemary, lemon grass just to name a few.

  • can I trim crepe myrtles now? Yes!

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!

    Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio’s ‘Parade of Ponds’ benefits our own Jackson Animal Care & Adoption Center. 100% of ticket sales goes to support their Mission in our community! 

    This is the 20th. year for our Annual Summer Pond Tour! The Pond Tour supports JACAAC – The Pond Tour Date is June 23rd. (Saturday). Tickets are $20 and 100% goes to support the cause! Please help get the word out! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

    AND the ‘Moonlight Luau’ is Saturday Night – after the Pond Tour!

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

    Folks I am ready! My “Luau Get-up” is laid out and ready! Tommy Bahama eat your heart out! 🙂 We are gonna have a contest to see who gets voted “Best Luau Look” and the winner will receive a special prize!
