December Day

25% off ALL plants extended plus ALL bagged EarthMix® products 25% off! 12/01/2016

Today is the last, first of the month for this year.  Yesterday was the next-to-last last of the month for 2016.  We are now 335 days into this trip around the sun.  I know you already knew those things; just thought I’d remind you. It may be that you never took the time to calculate just how many miles we earthlings travel in a year.  According to my calculations, that distance is 585,600,000 miles.  Light, by comparison, could travel that same distance in under 52.5 minutes.  Light cannot travel that same path however; it travels in straight lines. That is of course excepting when light passes large gravitational bodies, such as a black hole, where light gets bent; an effect known as gravitational lensing.

Now that I have that out of the way, it is time to talk about rain.  We got some.  I tracked mud into the house.  I forgot that mud happens when it rains…it’s been a while.  Another phenomenon of rain is softer soil.  That happens just after the mud stage.  Softer soil is extremely beneficial when digging holes in the ground.   Therefore, it is logical to assume that it is an excellent time to plant pretty much everything.

It just so happens that everything is exactly what we have.  Everything you could wish to plant in the fall is available at 25% off!  We are extending our 25% off all plants sale and expanding it to include all bagged EarthMix® products, also 25% off.  That makes it a great time to save while the digging is easy and the selection is extensive!  Trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, conifers, broadleaf evergreens, perennials, poinsettias, Japanese maples, magnolias, arborvitae and every different EarthMix® bagged product we sell are all 25% off!

I suggest you hurry.  Don’t get caught up in the mall madness.  Come on out and shop leisurely with the help of Nashville’s most accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendliest staff.  We’ll help make your December Days the best of the year.

December Day Greetings,

David Bates
