Taking a Summer Stroll

Saunter through Bates; we'll take 20% off everything* through July 23rd!

It seems most are getting enough rain to keep their watering minimized.  At least the ground seems to be receiving sufficient moisture to maintain a friable consistency. That means planting is still comparatively easy, as long as you don’t factor in sweat.  Perspiration aside, it is a perfectly acceptable time to plant; it is up to you to choose the time of day.

With the arrival of mid-July, the cadence of summer has reached full stride.  A string of warm, humid days punctuated here and there with a scorcher followed up by a bit cooler temps and some showers.  In some cases, there has been much more than showers; an outright deluge is not uncommon.  The folks in eastern middle Tennessee got a downpour of several inches of rain over a short period of time. There was some localized flooding, but fortunately, no serious injuries that I know of.  Some folks in eastern Kentucky were not so fortunate. One thing is certain; our weather is rarely dull.

We have an extensive selection of nearly anything you can think of; you might just find a few surprises.  We continue to receive new inventory weekly and we work diligently to keep our stock in prime condition. We have an offer for you to make your gardening chores a bit easier. Everything* will be 20% off through July 23, 2015 for BatesRewards members!  This includes all bagged and bulk materials on hand.

So no matter if you need to add a few “fill-in” plants to your perennials or if you want to plant a hedgerow, we have the selection to choose from and great value for planting en masse. We’re here to help you; take a few digital shots with your smartphone or tablet.  It helps us visualize your project.  We want to help you get the right plant in the right place, the first time!

Have an iced bottle of water while you shop,

David Bates
