Bates & Sons started in 1945 after founder Emmett Bates returned home from WWII to his wife Mildred and their daughter Nan and two sons Don and Fred. The first caladium planting was a 5 gallon bucket of mixed caladium varieties. Fred and wife Nancy and Don and his wife Dot became a part of the business in the 1970's. Terri, Sheri and Heidi joined in the 1980's and it became Bates Sons & Daughters.
