Encore, Encore!

Repeat blooming Azalea Event & Second Harvest Concert weekend!

According to comedic scientist Steven Wright,” Experience is something you don’t get, until just after you need it”. At Bates, we’re trying to circumvent that proposition… 

In an attempt to give you the information you need to make informed decisions around the garden and landscape, we are proud to have an Encore Azalea event, through Thursday October 28, 2010. To kick off this week of savings on Encore Azaleas, we are having Flowerwood Nursery’s own Tom Smith out to talk about the unique opportunities for your landscape Encore Azaleas provide.

On Saturday October 23th, Tom will speak at 11:00am and 1:00 pm, and tell you all about the various virtuous vicissitudes Encore Azaleas give to the landscape. Tom will also suggest how you may best incorporate these wonderful plants into your existing landscape. Tom will take questions following his talk, taking and answering any questions you may have.

In addition to that, we are offering Encore Azaleas at very special pricing. #3 (3 gallon) size Encore Azaleas, regularly $29.99 will be on sale through Thursday October 28th for just $19.99, while supplies last. For best results, we recommend you plant your Encore Azaleas with our EarthMix® Premium Soil Conditioner. Premium Soil Conditioner (PSC) treats your soil with everything your azaleas need to perform their best. Combine that with HollyTone® organic fertilizer, great for azaleas and all acid-loving plants.

We are also offering both these great products at special prices this week. PSC, regularly $6.99, this week only, will be $5.99; 20 lb. bag of HollyTone®, regularly $19.99, this week only for just $16.99. 4lb. bags of HollyTone® reg. $6.99 will be $5.99 this week.

We are also offering hardy Chrysanthemums, Buy One, Get One Free, as many as you wish, while supplies last. Special pricing on Gold Standard® Fescue seed continues. We still have a very good selection of pansies and violas on hand, but availability is dwindling quickly…don’t delay, we will run out soon.

By the way, The Woods at Fontanel will host an evening concert, under the stars featuring Gretchen Wilson and Montgomery-Gentry (with John Rich) this Sunday October 24th at 7:00pm, to raise funds and awareness for Second Harvest Food Bank. Regular Reserved and General Admission tickets are buy one, get one free. Tickets are on sale to the public through www.ticketmaster.com. Patrons are asked to bring a non-perishable item to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Make sure and get your receipt stamped at our checkout area for special discounts and pricing for Fontanel services and events!

Opportunities for Encores abound in the Whites Creek area this weekend, both in azaleas and concert standing “O’s”. Come on out, we all look forward to seeing you!
