Flood recovery nearly complete

Bates Nursery will re-open Friday May 7, 2010

As many in our city, we are dealing with effects of flooding from earlier this week. Our flooding was flash flooding, not associated with the river flooding now occurring in many area throughout middle Tennessee. Originally we believed we would be ready by Thursday May 6, but the clean up process has taken a bit longer than anticipated.

We are encouraged by the progress we have made. Fortunately, our plants were underwater only a few hours, so our process has been to wash and sort...everything.

Everything except the annuals and vegetables. Fortunately these fragile plants were all on benches above the flood waters, so our selection is excellent and in great shape.

We are well stocked and ready for Mother's Day weekend, we look forward to seeing you soon.
