The Gardens at Ball Are Open!

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

  • 8am to 10am
  • 10am to noon

Through self-guided tours and exploratory 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. Access codes on signs throughout The Gardens expand the product information with a link to a digital experience.

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

For customers unable to join us on-site, Ball Seed is developing an online discovery tour to showcase key plants 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 registration tent and observe social distancing while in The Gardens. A boxed lunch (sandwich, chips, cookie, water bottle) and light literature will be provided to each guest when they arrive. Please note: No additional tours of the Ball campus will be available, and 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.
