More than a destination. it’s an experience!

Come visit our gardens and stroll through over 5 acres of beautiful display gardens and shop our retail area where you can indulge in a great selection of trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. The display gardens inspire and educate you on the look of plants after they are established and have been growing for a number of years. We also have plant experts on staff ready to answer all your questions. Many of our employees have lovely gardens of their own at home and are willing to share their plant experiences. Join us for our spring celebration May 6th and 7th to kick off the season with great specials and advice!

We are a destination garden center that is totally unique to the Indianapolis area. If you are a plant connoisseur and haven’t yet been to visit, you need to plan a day trip. Call ahead if you are looking for something unusual. The varieties we offer for sale constantly change. Many unusual items are located for spring, but only one or two will be available for sale.

Within the five acre display gardens is the newly constructed garden pavilion. We rent the pavilion and grounds to host weddings/receptions, anniversary celebrations, and baby & bridal showers. Click here for more information and slide show.

We also use the pavilion to host our own events. Our “Music In The Gardens” series features live bands, dinner or appetizers and, occasionally, beer and wine tastings. For a lovely and intimate outdoor evening, secluded tables in the gardens are available by special request. Click here for a calendar of events at the gardens.
