The Docile Dog Days of Summer

Weather is nice, 30% off savings extended through August, 18th 2011

With forecast temperatures from the low 90’s to (dare I say) the mid-eighties over the weekend and a pretty good chance of showers, it gives you hope for fall in the not-too-distant future. Compared to what we’ve had weather-wise over most of the summer, it’s a literal breath of fresh air.

Julie Patterson and I had a meeting with our supplier of annuals this week; it looks like we may possibly have fall gardening plants in as soon as the end of August; certainly by the first of September. It’s not too early to plan for the glory that is autumn. We will have an extensive selection of vegetables to be sure, plus the most extensive selection of pansy plants, as the weather cools in earnest. Those pansy plants will include Plentifall Pansies, a new trailing pansy plant; great for hanging baskets or anywhere a hanging effect is desired. We’ll discuss further as we get closer to the season.

It seems only fitting, since our weather has decided to improve, to extend the 30% off everything (excluding gift cards and deliveries) sale another week. The moisture in the ground is pretty good and looks to have a good chance of improving. Cooler temperatures just make working outside a much more pleasant experience.

Since you’re getting 30% off everything, make sure you stock up on EarthMix® Premium Topsoil Blend and Premium Soil Conditioner. Obviously, you want to get the most out of your plants, you need to give them the best growing conditions; that what you get when you plant with EarthMix® brand products.

Come out and save big; 30% off Everything Sale extended one week…and yes the iced bottled water is still free!

Happy Gardening and thanks, from all of us at Bates Nursery,
