Summer Showcase

Ball Colegrave is delighted to welcome professional Bedding and Pot Plant Producers, Garden Centres, Parks, Landscapers and Garden Designers to its Trials Grounds in West Adderbury this coming Summer. The site comes alive with a spectacle of colour with what is undoubtedly the most exciting and innovative presentation of its kind in the UK.

Eight acres of grounds demonstrate a most diverse range of annual and perennial varieties in display gardens, pots, patio baskets and containers. And now with over 200 new varieties for 2015, there is plenty for all to see!

Over 50,000 plants are bedded out in traditional trial rows and informal planting schemes to help evaluate garden performance, colour range and offer inspiration for design.

A visit to the Annual Summer Open Days presents a special opportunity for Growers, Garden Centres and Parks to review their current plant range as well as identify new products for 2015 and view experimental lines being assessed for future introduction.

This year's Summer Showcase is Celebrating Colour in true style with a major new display looking deep into how consumers are using their outdoor space. We will be creating nine lifestyle, colour co-ordinated patio container gardens, each inspired by industry research into consumer attitudes to gardens and their use of outdoor space. The goal; to create a new stimulus for the industry in working together to encourage the home gardener to love their garden and spend more on seasonal colour.

Each patio garden is focused around the simple use of containers; by far the simplest way for even the most basic of gardeners to enjoy success with plants in their outdoor space. This was a theme embraced by this year's Garden Industry Manufacturers Board campaign; "Whatever space you've got, 'It Starts with a Pot.'"

To celebrate the diverse range of innovative patio containers available for the home gardener we will be joined by a number of leading manufacturers who will be exhibiting their products in the first ever Container Festival at Ball Colegrave.

Check out this video to get a taste of what you are going to see...

Ball Colegrave staff will be on hand throughout the day to offer help and guidance on all our varieties.
