Welcome to Hand Picked Nursery in Benson NC

Hand Picked Nursery is a local garden center and nursery located at 233 Ennis Rd, Benson, NC 27504.

We got our start in the world of ecommerce in 2006. Since then, we have built a successful ecommerce brand. In 2021, we purchased 23-acres here in Benson North Carolina and have been building the dream ever since!

We specialize in a variety of plants and products while providing our customers with the resources to thrive in their own gardening. To this day, we continue to build and improve our vision.

In addition to our garden center, we currently have a botanical trail that also serves as a picking trail and exercise trail, along with our outdoor entertainment areas, farm animals, dog park, flower farm, and a food truck (currently only open for events)!

Our long-term vision is to continue building our agritourism dream and be an interactive and educational center rooted in agriculture for the community!
