The Gardens at Ball Are Open!

Our annual Ball Seed Field Day & Landscape Day has been reinvented to accommodate a wide range of open dates to welcome guests safely and ensure adequate social distance. Ball Seed Customer Days will run Tuesdays through Fridays, July 28 - August 14, in two daily visitor time periods:

  • 8am to 10am
  • 10am to noon

Register today to reserve your date and time. You will be able to rsvp for multiple guests in your visit and a confirmation will be emailed to the primary contact with travel and lodging suggestions if needed.

Through self-guided tours and signage, guests will see the latest new products in-bloom in The Gardens at Ball as well as all of the product comparisons that are so important to decisionmakers in our industry. Discovery codes on signs throughout The Gardens expand the product information with a link to a digital experience.

For customers unable to join us on-site, Ball Seed has developed an online tour to showcase new variety introductions in The Gardens at Ball, and show their progress in pictures from June through August. Viewers across North America can still experience a tour and discover what’s new from Ball Seed.

Guests on-site will be asked to wear face coverings at the sign-in tent and observe social distancing while in The Gardens. A boxed lunch and light literature will be provided to each guest when they arrive. Please note: Due to COVID-19 and ongoing campus construction no additional tours of the Ball facilities will be available. A map will share directional guidance for timely touring.

Ball Seed is excited to share its trial gardens in West Chicago with its North American customers, and is pleased to provide adaptable touring opportunities during this special phase of Restore Illinois.

For questions or concerns, please call 800 879-BALL or email fieldtrial@ballhort.com.
