No Mayday This May Day

Josh & David broadcast live from Dickens’ Hendersonville store on Saturday

It was an audible sigh of relief. The threat of severe weather forecast earlier in the week fortunately spared us. Some folks further south were not so fortunate. For whatever reason, the very end of April/very beginning of May seems to hold much trepidation for all of us nearly every year. Only four years removed from the flood here in Nashville, the tension surrounding these weather events can't help but captivate our attention. I believe it is safe to say, we are all grateful for the wonderful weather we are having today.


For the last 16+ years I have been privileged to broadcast every Saturday morning with my good friend Josh Cary. This Saturday, Josh and I have a special treat. We will be broadcasting live from Dickens Turf and Landscape Supply’s newest  location in Hendersonville. If you're not familiar with Dickens, they are the premier, locally owned and operated, turf, soil, and equipment specialists. We'll be broadcasting live from 7 to 9 AM this Saturday on SuperTalk 99.7FM WTN. I invite you to come out and see us at the grand opening of their Hendersonville location. Owner Brian Dixon, General Manager Drew Sullivan, as well as the entire staff at Dickens, approach business the same way we do: provide the best products and expertise available. They are great friends to have.


Meanwhile, back at the nursery, we have been busily unloading truckloads of plant material from all across the country. We have received trucks from three of Monrovia’s locations.  We have also received another shipment of Emerald Arborvitae and Schip Laurel; heavily requested items we have been out of for a couple of weeks, now ready for sale.


We are absolutely stocked to the gills with everything you could possibly want for your garden. I invite you to let our experts help you find the right plant, for the right place, the first time. Many trucks have rolled in this week; we have what you are looking for!


It's May Day,


David Bates
