Ball Horticultural Co. Seeks Innovative New ProductsSource: Ball Horticultural Co.

Consumer research from Ball Horticultural Co. reveals that non-gardeners cite “lack of time” as the No. 1 reason they choose not to garden. In order to broaden the appeal and enhance the rewarding satisfaction of gardening for all, Ball is currently seeking new product solutions and innovative ideas to reduce the time and effort associated with gardening prep and maintenance.Consumer research from Ball Horticultural Co. reveals that non-gardeners cite “lack of time” as the No. 1 reason they choose not to garden. In order to broaden the appeal and enhance the rewarding satisfaction of gardening for all, Ball is currently seeking new product solutions and innovative ideas to reduce the time and effort associated with gardening prep and maintenance.

Assisting in this quest to generate new product ideas, Ball has signed up with Edison Nation (www.edisonnation.com), a crowd sourcing website that screens and process the submissions of independent inventors looking to bring their ideas to market. Edison Nation connects these “idea people” with the manufacturing and retail communities seeking new products.

“We have issued a challenge through Edison Nation for imaginative new products that will not only make gardening easier and more successful, but ultimately help the environment as well,” said Drew Effron, product manager for Ball Innovations.

Those interested in answering Ball’s call for new product ideas should visit the Edison Nation website. The deadline for submissions is March 22, 2010.
