I wrote how this GardenLady enjoys attending horticulture lectures. I recently attended a horticulture conference where the keynote speaker was Anna Ball, the President and CEO of the Ball Horticultural Company whose headquarters is in Chicago, Illinois.

The Ball company is a wholesale company that has introduced some of the most popular garden plants that grow in our gardens today. They have created such plants as the WaveÂ® Petunia and Fiestaâ„¢ Double Impatiens. The Ball Company is very concerned about sustainability in gardening. What they mean by this is that they are always striving to bring better plants to market- plants that need less water, energy and chemicals to flourish. This is a company working to bring the best plants to our gardens.
