Taking Summer in Stride

Saunter through Bates; we’ll take 25% off everything that grows through August 1st!


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 late 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.  This week has brought a welcome reduction of temperature and humidity. One thing is certain; our weather is rarely dull. At this point, we’re all simply taking summer in stride.


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 that grows will be 25% off through August 1, 2019 for BatesRewards members! 


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!  That’s our job.


Have a free bottle of water while you shop,
