The Third Season
Get 33% off any three plant items and/or pottery
It's official now; at least
as of June 21, 2013 at12:04 AM CDT… summer arrives! Indeed, it is the third
season we have transitioned through this year. To be sure, each seasonal change
brings its own challenges and rewards. I
will discuss with you next week about seasonal pests to be mindful of and
effective treatment; but for now, let’s concentrate on landscape
opportunities. It’s summer; the third
We want to extend an
invitation to community gardens. We have vegetable plants to share! While
supplies last, we will donate to any community garden project up to 10 flats of vegetable plants. The
vegetable plants will be available to community gardens on a first come, first
served basis… so don’t delay!
Last week I was honored and
privileged with the invitation to speak before a group of garden center owners,
from the New England area, by Imperial Nurseries in Connecticut. While I was
there, I had the opportunity to tour Imperial Nurseries facility and extensive
selection of plant material. We received a shipment from Imperial Nurseries on
Tuesday and it looks even better here than it did there.
That shipment contained a
large selection of Japanese maples as well as many other wonderful items I know
you're going to want to see. There will no doubt be several items will be of
great interest to you. And as if that wasn't enough, we've got a deal to help
you get the third season kicked off right! As a BatesRewards member, you can select up to three plant items or pottery and get them at 33% off. Mix and match if you like. A beautiful
Japanese maple and a new container might be just the ticket. Since the summer
season is now here, our hours have changed a bit. We are now open Monday through Saturday 8 AM to 4 PM; we are closed Sundays until fall.
Believe it or not, good
things happen in threes! Our Third Season Sale ends June 27th.
Come celebrate with us,
