Springtime in July

A welcome reprieve from past summer’s weather

It is hard to believe the weather. It is hard to believe the weather forecast. Unbelievably, we are set for a spectacular spring weekend…in mid-July! We are receiving rains regularly. The temperatures are much cooler. With high temperatures forecast to be only in the upper 70’s (can that be true?), I have to believe it has to keep you in the gardening spirit.

I know I sound like a broken record, but it doesn’t get better than this. Anyone who has any inkling of a thought about working on the landscape could not ask for better conditions. The time for action is now.

We had a tremendous response to our Buy One, Get One Free, offer last weekend. The only problem was the weather, it rained both days. Many have asked me to consider running the offer again this weekend. After much deliberation, consternation, pondering, mulling it over, quiet repose and reflection, as well as deep introspective thought, I have decided YES WE WILL.

We are having an ENCORE PERFORMANCE of our Buy One, Get One Free, sale this Saturday July 18, and Sunday July 19, 2009. Due to the rain last weekend, and overwhelming pleading, we will again offer you our BatesRewards Members the opportunity to purchase any item and get a second item of equal or lesser value FREE. Remember: only one item per BatesRewards Household will be given free, but it can be anything you choose, so long as you purchase another item of equal or greater value.

So if your schedule was too full last weekend and you couldn’t make it out, or if there was something you saw last weekend but you decided on something else, here’s another chance. But this is the last chance for this great offer. This Saturday July 18, and Sunday July 19, 2009 only!

We have an incredible selection of landscape specimens; we have expertise to solve even the toughest landscape situations. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you.

By the way, we also had a tremendous response to the blueberry picking. So much so that they all got picked, I hope you enjoyed your blueberries! If you have decided you would like to plant some at your house, we have a special offer #3 Blueberries, regular $24.99 are on sale this weekend also for just $19.99. Remember, you should plant two varieties for best cross-pollination. This is a great way to use your Buy One, Get One Free offer…get two blueberries for just $19.99!

So plan your weekend now, come on out to see us at Bates Nursery & Garden Center, have a free bottle of water, and Buy One, Get One Free. Remember, this offer is for BatesRewards members only, but please feel free to pass this along to your friends, membership is free and signing up is easy.

Enjoy the springtime weather…in July,

David Bates
