A Visit To The Ball Colegrave Summer Showcase 2018

Trial Field Beds

This morning four of the team left the college for a few hours in search of more inspiration having already found plenty during the recent team visits to Waterperry Gardens Oxford, Christ's College and Clare College in Cambridge. Graham, Callum, Pete and Ali made the short trip out to Ball Colegrave in West Adderbury to look around the 8 acre site containing their Summer Showcase.

"Over 50,000 Annual and Perennial plants are bedded out in the trial and display beds and in excess of 3,000 baskets and patio containers are planted up for the event". (Ball Colegrave Summer Showcase 2018).

They found plenty of plant displays to stimulate their creativity, made copious notes of their favourite plants, took numerous photographs and picked up plenty of catalogues to take back to the college for future reference. Three visits in three weeks, all so different but equally inspiring.
