The Southern Garden History Society, along with SFA Gardens, Friends of Historic Nacogdoches, Inc, and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present 300 Years of Plants on the Move in Texas in historic Nacogdoches, Texas Friday and Saturday October 5&6, 2018 to celebrate Texas’ Tricentennial in gardening with tours, lectures, a book signing, and a reception. As a special treat, attendees will be able to attend the famous annual fall plant sale at the SFA Garden’s Pineywoods Native Plant Center. Lectures will cover a broad sweep of horticulture and gardening history in Texas beginning with the Spanish era through pass-a-long Narcissus, garden scenes from the past, and modern introductions. Speakers include Jeff Abt, Dave Creech, Greg Grant, and William C. Welch. The event will be held at the prestigious, newly restored Fredonia Hotel and Convention Center (Historic Hotel in Nacogdoches, Texas) where they have blocked off a number of rooms for the event.
