The "Bella Vista Gardening" television program is produced at the Bella Vista Community Television station and can be seen on Cox Cable Channel 222 on Wednesday at 8:00 pm and on Saturday at 8:05 am. The program is also shown on AT&T U-Verse by selecting BVCTV Channel 99.

Now the program has new sponsors: The Bella Vista Garden Club and the Benton County Master Gardeners sponsoring the program as Director's Cirle Members of Bella Vista Community Television

This monthly television program is hosted by Geri Hoerner, Past President of the BVGC and a Benton County Master Gardener. A guest appears each month to talk about different gardening subjects. Each month a "Things To Do List" for the garden is also discussed. The program is a great way to let the public know of our upcoming events and other gardening events in the area. The Benton County Master Gardeners are also featured on the program.

In January 2011 the Bella Vista Community Television station began digital broadcasting on Cox Cable Channel 222. The station now reaches all of NW Arkansas down to Fayetteville in addition to Bella Vista. In order to receive the digital broadcasts, a digital box for high definition reception from Cox Cable is required and there is a monthly charge for the box. The program is also broadcast on AT&T U-verse Channel 99.

A DVD library of the "Bella Vista Gardening" program has been established for those members who cannot view Cox Cable Channel 222 or AT&T U-verse 99. And now, these programs are available online on YouTube. Click here for access to all the Club's Videos on YouTube or links to individual videos can be found in the monthly program descriptions which are available on the yearly page links in the right hand column of this page. The YouTube video collection can also be accessed directly from the horizontal navigation bar under "BVGC on TV."

The buttons will take you to descriptions of each program arranged by years.

Plants want to grow; they are on your side as long as you are reasonably sensible.
