WEST CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, April 2022: The annual Darwin Perennials Day is back and in-person this spring in The Gardens at Ball. Ball Seed would like to formally invite you to this premier perennial event, which includes a showcase of more than 25 suppliers and breeders covering all your perennial needs in one place. Registration is now open at www.darwinperennialsday.com.

At Darwin Perennials Day, Wednesday, June 22, 2022, you’ll get a first-look at new varieties and see how perennials from the world’s best breeders perform in our zone 5 overwinter trials. There will be educational sessions and networking opportunities throughout the day to push perennial programs to the next level for greenhouse growers, nurseries and landscapers, designers and garden retailers.

“The hallmarks of this annual perennials event are education and opportunity. You’ll especially want to meet with the expert suppliers featured in the tent showcase,” says Jim Kennedy, Sales Director for Ball Seed. “It’s a must-attend showcase to learn from the best and form your own comparisons to help you make the most comprehensive decisions for your perennials program.”

Also included in the full-day itinerary are guided tours of the perennial gardens and the Ball Helix Central Research & Development facility on-campus. A keynote presentation by Suzanne Wainwright-Evans of Buglady Consulting will address “Implementing Bio-Control Agents”.
