Hot Spell

BatesRewards members save 33% off all Monrovia Plants! 08/22/2014
We knew it was too good to be true. Just when we were thinking that we were going to get through the summer without a scorching streak of days, our luck runs out.  It could be worse.  Actually, we have been really fortunate this summer.  While we have had some dry periods, and now a hot spell, they haven’t arrived concurrently. When dry conditions have been present, it hasn’t been excessively hot.  From our plants’ point-of-view, the heat is decidedly more bearable with the rains received the last two weeks, albeit a bit muggy from the human prospective.

 You can bet the farm on the finest Nashville has to offer as the Nashville Scene rolls out its blockbuster annual Best of Nashville issue! The Scene celebrates the yield of Music City's fertile soil — the creativity the city cultivates in music, the arts and dining, and the people, places and businesses that give our cityscape its contours. Our BatesRewards members (that’s you!) have honored us, by voting us ‘Best of Nashville’ for the 10th time last year! We would appreciate your vote yet again in ‘Best Nursery/Garden Center’ category. Simply go to www.nashvillescene.com/vote. You must vote in at least 20 different categories in order for your votes to be counted. Only registered users can take this survey; it just takes a minute to sign up. Voting ends September 5th. Thank you for your support!

 Admittedly, the heat makes it difficult to even think about planting.  If you can conjure up enough cooling thoughts, we have an outstanding opportunity for you. Through the end of business on Thursday August 28, 2014 you can purchase the best plants on the planet…Monrovia plants, at 33% off!  All BatesRewards members will not only receive 33% off all Monrovia plants; but you will also receive free iced bottled water to keep those cooling thoughts going while you shop.

 Break out the floppy hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen and come on out and save! We will help you get the right plant in the right place!
