Soggy, Saturated Summer Start

You get 15% off your entire order*, plus up to two flats of FREE vegetables plants!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but it has been raining.  It is unclear whether the start of summer, escorted in with heavy rain, comes with any folklore related foreboding, but it is wet.  Rain is a good thing.  It is a necessary part of life. In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is let it rain.” A personal favorite of mine, a bit closer to home, is the songwriting legend Roger Miller’s quote, “Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.”

It appears the rain will wane by Saturday morning; just in time for The At Home Show with Josh Cary and David Bates.  We air every Saturday morning from 7- 9a on 650 AM WSM.  We are thrilled to welcome guest host Drew Sullivan this Saturday!

Since we’ve all made the transition to summer, albeit damply, there is no better time to take full advantage of the copious moisture in the soil and finish, what you have yet to start.  Perhaps you have started already, but no matter, the time is still great and the conditions agreeable for planting.  First of all, as a BatesRewards member, you will get 15% off your entire purchase*, plus, as an added benefit, you can get up to two flats of vegetable plants to expand your garden or to share with friends and family!  The free vegetable plants include: all 1204 flats, (that is the twelve packs per flat, 4 plants per pack) or 4P vegetable plants…including herbs!  We still have an excellent selection of heirloom tomatoes, a vast array of peppers and much more, many already bearing fruit!

We appreciate your loyalty. This is our way of saying thanks for choosing Bates Nursery as your preferred horticultural, gardening and landscaping source.  As always, the expertise is free as well as is the iced bottled water.  Make sure to hydrate while you’re picking up your free vegetables!
