Even though The Gardens at Ball are taking a Winter nap, you can still enjoy the colorful 2022 Summer trial season through a NEW 3D Map experience (link opens in a new window) using immersive photography and 360 camera technology.

We captured The Gardens in 2022 at the height of its Summer color and we're excited to share this unique map perspective to help growers experience our West Chicago, Illinois trials. Through this virtual tour, The Gardens live on and continue to inspire!

Each Summer, more than 145,000 plants go into The Gardens at Ball representing over 1,800 different varieties from +200 genera and 80 breeding companies. Four acres of The Gardens are re-designed each year, so there’s always something new to explore. Planting begins in April/May and timed for peak color during the annual Ball Seed Customer Days event the last Friday in July.
