Labor Day Weekend Tree Sale

Get the jump on fall planting

Hard to believe Labor Day weekend is here. Even though Labor Day has been celebrated for about 125 years, it is still a welcome day for most folks. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Before you take your well-deserved rest, I think you should take a trip out to Whites Creek Pike and take advantage of the savings we are offering this Labor Day Weekend. Here is where the contradiction may exist: We are offering extreme value on our most labor intensive items. We are offering 40% discount off on all container trees, we are also including our large container grown magnolias and hollies. All magnolias and hollies in a #15 (15 gallon) size container and LARGER will also be 40% off.
We have an extensive selection of trees to choose from, and since they are all container grown, there is no transplant shock. Trees are ready for their new home…yours!

We have also brought in our first fall shipment of color. Everything from chrysanthemums to pansies and much more. In addition to the vivid colors of pansies and mums we also have a great selection of flowering kale, cabbage and mustard along with Swiss chard and ornamental peppers, to get you started.

The really big news for gardeners is the shipment of cool weather vegetable plants that have arrived. Lettuce-Romaine, Buttercrunch & Mesclun Mix; Cabbage-Golden Acre, Bok Choy, Red, Market Prize; White Rock Cauliflower; Green Comet Broccoli, Yates Collards and Brussels sprouts.

We have also received cool conifers from Iseli Nursery from Boring, Oregon. While the plants are from Boring they definitely are not boring. Check out pictorial updates on Twitter, www.twitter.com/batesnursery.

We will be CLOSED Monday September 7th in observance of Labor Day.

Come see us this weekend,
