Wild and Weird Weather

Marty Reich from the Nashville Rose Society talks in The GreenRoom, 2pm Saturday

We have all been guilty. We have collectively been obsessed with the weather. Who could blame us? I’ve had friends from Hawaii, California and New York call concerned. Apparently we now live at the corner of Tornado Alley and Cumberland Seaway. Our reputation for frightful weather has gotten out. It’s probably a good thing we all had no idea what was about to arrive… this time last year. As happy as we are to be a year removed from tragedy, that is joy is tempered by the tornadic devastation earlier this week of the unfortunate folks down south. Nature is an equal opportunity force.

Thankfully, the sun shines with wonderful temperatures today. We have everything on-hand to get your landscape in tip-top shape. Our greenhouse is beyond capacity. We have a selection of plants of every description. It matters not what your landscape situation may be, we have plants and more importantly, the expertise to help you through the selection process. If you need a bit more help than a few recommendations, it may be that you need our “We Plan, You Plant” service. For just $99 you get an hour and a half consultation with our designer, Katherine Raymond. This service is done here at the nursery, by appointment only. She currently has openings available starting next week. Email Katherine for your time slot as well as special offers: katherineraymond@batesnursery.com. 

Nothing makes a statement in the landscape like roses. Marty Reich of the Nashville Rose Society will discuss roses this Saturday. As a member of the Nashville Rose Society, Marty knows what works best for gardeners interested in planning and planting rose gardens. Plan on visiting with Marty in The GreenRoom at 2:00 PM this Saturday. Seating is first-come, first-served or you can contact Sara Bates for reservations: sarabates@batesnursery.com. 

Everything is in place: from Tennessee Cedar Raised Beds, to EarthMix® soil mixes, to everything for your garden, to available deliveries for your plants or bulk material needs. The only missing ingredient is you. We thank you for the opportunity to serve your gardening needs!

…Bella (our mascot) is looking forward to seeing you also,
