The gardens at ball

Sundays Washington Post had an interesting article in the Business section "Seeds of doubt" by Adrian Higgins, about the Ball seed company, Ball Floral Plant and Pan American Seed Co.
What I found interesting was that they opened the "Gardens at Ball" in July. "They contain tens of thousands of plants representing 1.918 varieties and relfecting what the taste makers are eyeing for your garden."
Since the gardens are located at West Chicago, I guess I won't see them for a while. Anyone live near there? They are really worth a visit, judging from the pictures.
