A home lush with greenery doesn’t require playing a magical board game that lures jungle-animal hordes or moving in with Robin Hood. Catch and cultivate nature’s plant buddies with today’s Groupon. For $20, you get $40 worth of plants and supplies at Bates Nursery & Garden Center. Two Groupons may be purchased per person, but only one may be used per visit.
Stock up on vibrant plants and handy supplies to enliven any home, space pod, bicycle basket, or seafaring carrack. Bates Nursery boasts a rich history dating back to 1932, when Bessie Bates embarked on a quest to beautify Nashville without a shotgun mascara applicator. Browse a huge selection of annuals, perennials, and fruiting plants in addition to gardening tools, fertilizer, and other supplies. A handsome white-blooming Alice Oakleaf hydrangea ($19.99), an Eastern Concord grape vine ($15.99), and a pair of Atlas gloves ($7.99) perfect any porch or patio. Bates Nursery also offers a wide range of roses, soils, grasses, and pottery.
Swinging around the jungle like Tarzan is a great way to be surrounded by plants, but donning a loincloth is a fashion faux pas for 2010. Bates Nursery offers a chicer way to surround oneself with gorgeous greenery. The knowledgeable staff is always available to help you figure out the best plants and supplies to start a garden, make spring blossom, or finish crafting an impenetrable rose briar to fend off door-to-door salesmen and Ed McMahon.

Bates Nursery & Garden Center
In 1932, Bessie Bates had such confidence in her business idea that she built a hothouse during the height of the Great Depression. Today, the nursery flourishes across 15 acres of space, where the family and staff guides shoppers to annuals, perennials, pots, and gardening supplies. They might also introduce green-thumbed customers to rhododendrons, climbing roses, flowering quince, or concealer that makes their thumbs look more flesh-toned. The stock also includes garden accessories, such as ceramic pottery and statuary artifacts.
