The Present Tense

25% off All landscape plants*, also including Living Christmas trees, poinsettias, and bagged EarthMix® Landscape! Digital Bates Nursery gift cards available here!


I am writing this newsletter.  You are reading it now.  This is the present tense.  Now is…right now.  Thinking of future events makes my head hurt.  I must plan ahead.  I’m feeling conflicted. I must take action.  My decider seems to be non-functional.  What am I doing here?


We’re not living in the future, let’s talk about right now, and how to get through the next two weeks unscathed.  Well, comparatively so.  We all face challenges in making gift purchase decisions.  So much so, that many people feel an undue amount of stress.  I don’t believe the holidays, or any other time for that matter, should be lived under self-imposed duress.  It is self-imposed, right?  It’s always difficult to come up with something that our special someone wants; that they will surely appreciate.  We all want to feel good in the ‘giving’.


Obviously, December is not usually held in high regard as “THE” time for planting.  It is however “A” time for planting.  While the holidays provide abundant distraction from the garden, it is an occasion for those, who choose, to enjoy delightful gardening conditions and save money in the process. Perhaps it is time to consider alternative gifts for the holiday season.


Through the end of business on Thursday December 16th, you will receive 25% off of all* landscape plant purchases!  Just to make sure your landscape savings are complete, and your plants perform their best, we are also offering EarthMix® Landscape at 25% off as well!  The 25% off all* landscape plants also applies to poinsettias, along with living Christmas trees!


Here’s something you can do right now…in the present tense: Digital Bates Nursery gift cards are available by clicking here!  I will now remind you: we're still open two more Saturdays this year.Disregard what the weather is doing.  Bundle up, and come on out, for some mild December gardening.  We’re here to help!


Happy Holly Days!
