As more consumers begin to grow their own vegetables, Ball Horticultural and W. Atlee Burpee have introduced a solution to help consumers be successful with home vegetable gardens. Burpee Home Gardens is a new program that will offer Burpee-branded, garden-ready plants at retail garden centers. Burpee varieties include easy to plant, easy to tend, long-yielding vegetables and herbs.
Ball will launch the Burpee Home Gardens program at the 2009 California Pack Trials. The plants will be sold in select markets during 2009 and nationally in 2010.
The products will be on display at Pack Trials during Ball Solutions Showcase in Santa Paula, California, March 28-April 3.
