Stepping into Benedict’s Nursery is a bit like stepping into a scene from a fairytale – tiny, remarkable plants that make ordinary plants seem huge in comparison fill garden racks and specially made containers.
Owner Esther Benedict specializes in alpines and other unusual species that are seldom seen in a garden shop. It may seem curious that a German Baptist woman living in Nappanee is knowledgeable about species that survive in high altitude or harsh desert terrain, but it’s her hobby. Esther can tell you all about these amazing, slow growing little plants.
She also makes and sells the rugged, rock-like hyper-tufa pots ideally suited for these hearty miniatures and gives classes on making your own.
Open for tours Monday thru Saturday with advance reservation.
