We carry everything from groundcovers to large specimen container trees.  We offer the widest selection of seasonal color with annuals, as well as the most complete selection of perennial plants for year-round enjoyment.  Woody ornamentals for the landscape are available in a vast array; whether you need broadleaf evergreens, deciduous shrubs, or eye-popping conifers we have it all.  Of course we carry everything else you could want: Ornamental grasses, Japanese Maples, Edible (fruiting) landscape plants and topiary plants to compliment any landscape.

An extensive inventory wouldn't mean much without information to back it up.  Here on our website, we offer state-of-the-art information.  Our entire inventory is searchable and is updated daily.  The listings of what is on-hand at Bates are accompanied by the quantity available as well as pricing.  Additional product information is also provided when available so that we can further help you find the perfect plant for the area you are hoping to fill in your landscape.

Since we have been growing plants for generations, we understand the vital nature of growing media.  At Bates Nursery & Garden Center, we sell only EarthMix® brand soils and amendments.  The success our customers experience begins at the ground level. 

Container gardening is a vital part of any landscape.  We carry a great selection of containers for your home, office or apartment.  Container gardening gives everyone an opportunity to exercise their green thumb.
