Green Thumbs Meet in Tyler

The 11th annual "East Texas Spring Landscape and Garden Conference" was held at the Rose Center in Tyler Saturday.

This year's topics included tips on basic gardening, the rules for growing tropical plants in East Texas and instructions on how to landscape your own yard. Organizers say gardening is big in East Texas, more popular than even hunting or fishing.

The conference attracted about 200 people and organizers plan to hold the event again next year. The conference was put on by Texas Cooperative Extension in Smith County and the City of Tyler Parks and Recreation department.
