59 years of Plant Trials

Ball Colegrave has been conducting plant variety trials and customer open days from their Trial Grounds in West Adderbury for 59 years.
Today’s Trial Grounds not only presents the companies wide assortment of catalogue varieties in a rich display of settings and retail ideas, but also comprehensively evaluates thousands of new future lines before introduction. This ensures that when a product is introduced in the Ball Colegrave catalogues, our staff and visitors have seen it and know it really does perform well under UK growing conditions!
A visit to the Annual Summer Showcase always presents a special opportunity for Plant Nursery’s, Retail Plant Buyers and Parks Teams to review their current plant range as well as identify new products for next season as well as assess experimental lines for future introduction.
