Seasonal Changes arrive with Father’s Day Deals
Week-long savings; 20% off EVERYTHING*!
As the official beginning of summer arrives next week, so do a few changes around the nursery. Beginning Monday June 20th, our business hours will be 8am to 4pm Monday through Saturday, Closed on Sundays beginning June 26th. We look forward to having a bit more time off during the heat of summer; we also look forward to keeping your thoughts mindfully on the garden, and keeping it looking its best.
Father’s Day is the time when I always try to remind conifer lovers to spray/treat for bagworms and spider mites. For those persons wanting to take the most organic and earth-friendly approach, I suggest Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew. Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew contains Spinosad®, a trusted organic chemical used extensively in organic fruit production; does a good job on both spider mites and bagworms…as long as you apply now. Both pests are either in juvenile or low infestation stage now, but that will change quickly. Failure to act fast will likely result in needing to take more aggressive approach by using systemic insect controls containing either Acephate or Imidacloprid (I’m sure you were just thinking that). We have both under the Bonide label. We also have Hi-Yield 38 Plus spray (contains permethrin), if you prefer a fast-acting contact spray. Permethrin is also very good for a number of other pests; probably has the most diverse insecticide label of any product on the market today.
Now for the deal in honor of all Dad’s: Everything for 20% off. The only exclusions are deliveries* and special orders*…that’s it. If you don’t know what dad would like specifically, get him a gift card, even those are 20% off (or get one for yourself). Pick decorative containers, decorative plants, EarthMix® planting mixes, or mulches, everything your (or Dad’s) heart desires, is 20% off through Thursday June 23rd. This is our way of saying thanks for being a BatesRewards member!
We’ve still got a great selection of color for your garden and landscape; be it perennial or annuals get all those at 20% off also! As always, free iced bottled water is available in the perennial area.
Let Dad know how special he is…or just let him out, he deserves it,
