What gardener doesn’t want to attend this presentation?! Join Mike DeRee from Ball Seed Company as he talks about new annual varieties introduced in 2023, the must-haves, and rock star annuals from the past couple of years. He’ll also entertain and enlighten you with stories about the plant industry, an industry that is both historical and newly forming at the same time.
Mike DeRee is a first generation American. His parents immigrated to America in 1954 with a dream of starting a family bulb business. The dream broadened to selling flowers and the family greenhouse business was born in the mid-1960s. Mike worked in the family business one way or another, and then joined Ball Seed Company as a territory sales representative. For the last 26 years, Mike has serviced greenhouse growers in Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. His passion is to “color the world one successful gardener at a time” by assisting growers in plant selections that ensure success for consumers.
