The Henderson County Master Gardener garden at the East Texas Arboretum was first started as a trial garden for "EarthKind Roses" at the end of the test is was converted to a cottage garden called "Texas Cottage Garden." The following list of slideshows are in a Microsoft Power Point format. These are slides that show the history of the Texas Cottage Garden. The slide shows on this site may be downloaded to your computer for easier viewing. Many hours of work have been put into this garden for your enjoyment. We invite you to come sit and dream big!
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.
What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.
