A Celebration of Many Lives through the TBCC

Don’t settle for just 10% off on a tax-free weekend; BatesRewards members get 33% off through Aug. 8th

The Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition was founded in 1995 to increase awareness of breast cancer issues to men and women in Tennessee. Now for 17 years, their efforts have led them to a vast number of accomplishments in our state.

We at Bates Nursery & Garden Center are a proud supporter of the TBCC. We invite you to participate in this most worthwhile cause. We are honored to be the provider of plants and installer of the 30’ pink ribbon at Hermitage Golf Course. To donate to the TBCC, go to their website: www.tbcc.org.

This just in from the Department of Redundancy Department: You may be thinking of doing a bit of trimming around the garden. It is time to do that now, without delay. Your shrubbery requires sufficient time to push out new growth and for it to harden off and mature before frost. (Right about now, frost sounds pretty inviting)…doing this chore now gets that task off of the “to-do” list. You plants will thank you by looking their best throughout the fall and winter. By getting non-flowering shrubs trimmed now and fertilized with Espoma® Organic fertilizers, you can assure yourself of getting your plants ready for fall…even in this heat.

There’s a lot of talk about the tax-free weekend coming up. I admit I like to save 10% as much as the next person. It seems to me that 10% is a nice start, but wouldn’t 33% be much better? Through Thursday August 8, 2012, BatesRewards members will receive 33% off everything we have in stock. And it doesn’t matter if it’s for back-to-school or not! Gift card, deliveries and consignment items are excluded; everything else in stock is included.

Make sure to make your way down to the perennial area; the plants are great and that’s where the free iced bottled water and sports beverages are located; drink all you want while you shop; we want you to keep hydrated!

Support the TBCC along with Bates Nursery; we hope you’ll come see us,
