Half-Past November

25% Off All Plants, Bagged EarthMix® products extended!

Say buddy, what time you got?” “’Bout half-past…November; why’ya ask?” “Jes settin’ my…calendar.” This is not a conversation you would have every day (unless you’re talking to me). Dang if November hasn’t up and gotten halfway away from us. Where does time go? I mean really; where does it go?

It doesn’t seem like it’s been more than a month since we were suffering from the worst heat wave ever and drought to boot. Where has that four months R-U-N-N-O-F-T to? Are we living in a Rip Van Winkle state? Perhaps it’s just me.

I had the passage of time explained in such a way, that it even makes sense to me. I don’t know if this is correct, but I like it: Time is a function of perception. We break time into segments of measure. How fast those segments seem to pass is relative to your age. Give this some thought: A four-year-old perceives a year to be 25% of their life…because it is; and 25% of your life is a lot. By the time you reach twenty, a year is only 5% of your life experience. That means, by the time you reach 50, a year is only 2% of your total time. No wonder Christmas and birthdays seem to come twice a year!

We have had many BatesRewards members sending regrets for not having the opportunity to save 25% on EarthMix® brand products and all plants. There was not enough time in their schedule. Well, I know it’s not quite like having Christmas or birthday twice a year, but we are extending the sale; 25% off on ALL Bagged EarthMix® products and everything that grows. All trees, shrubs, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, Encore Azaleas, Camellias, Pansies, Violas, and much more…all receive a 25% discount. The weather is wonderful and our selection is immense. Come in and let our pros help you get the right plant in the right place…the first time! And always remember:

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second best time is now!

Come in for great landscapes; the older you are, the less time it takes to get here!
