The East Texas Bedding Plant Greenhouse and Garden Performance Trial Program was begun by Dr. Brent Pemberton in 1994 at the Overton Center with the goal of generating and providing information on greenhouse and field performance of bedding plant varieties to the local bedding plant industry and consumers of these products. The program began with local trials that has now expanded in scope with the Smith County and Rusk County Master Gardeners Associations playing an integral role in performing the trials.

The seeds are planted, potted, re-potted and moved to the fields.  Finally the “Horticulture Field Day” offers the public the opportunity to view the blooming plants.  For the agenda and directions to this event, go to http://flowers.tamu.edu/horticulture-field-day/ .
