More Like They Are Now

40% off landscape plants, plus Buck-A-Gallon!

In the words of the late Sen. Everett Dirksen, "Things are more like they are now than they ever have been". That pretty much covers it. I could stop right now and say no more. That is unlikely, however.  When it comes to thinking about anything in life as being certain, a short, well-known, two-item list comes to mind (keep thinking, you know what they are). Other than those two things, everything else is up for grabs.


Take this week for instance. After digging our winter clothing out from the freeze of the week prior, we have been sent scrambling for short sleeve shirts and flip-flops. Flip-flop is apropos, because that's what the weather is doing again. I trust you haven't put your winter gear away. It's not that it's going to be all that cold; it's not. It certainly does not appear we will have an onslaught of Arctic precipitation. Okay, looks like we may have some, but certainly not an onslaught. The last time we had certifiable onslaught arctic conditions in December, was probably 1968 or 1990. Be mindful of this: the weather floggings will continue until morale improves!


While we endure the most recent abrupt change, here's something else to think about: Buck-A-Gallon. That's right, we have gone through and carefully selected our least desirable, yet very much alive, plants. These plants have seen better days. With your love, and attention, I know they can become viable and useful members of your landscape. In the unlikely event they don't, at least you haven't wagered much. You know the drill: 1 gallon plant = $1; 30 gallon plant = $30, and all sizes in between. These specially marked items are on our tree lot. Shop early; shop often, while supplies last.


Meanwhile, our entire selection of landscape plants continues at 40% off! We still have a tremendous selection. Avoid the mall and crowds; we have Bates gift cards available in any denomination for the gardener in your life!


Ho-ho, hey, come out and see us,
