Gardens on the Prairie in Lowell, Indiana
There’s a lot to love about Gardens on the Prairie! For starters, this Northern Indiana gardening hub sits on not quite 8 acres of land.
This Lowell, Indiana garden shop is basically surrounded by cornfields and rolling hills. Everywhere you look from every angle of the property looks like something from the front of a postcard.
We were given a tour and it was really fun walking around looking at all the different types of gardens. Even though we visited at the end of the season, it was still absolutely incredible!
Lowell, Indiana Garden Center
They have a variety of themed gardens. Each one is so different from the next I couldn’t even pick a favorite!
We roamed through a cutting garden, where fresh flowers are cut (yes, this was full of butterflies!). We also saw a Potager or Kitchen Garden, a geometric garden once used not only for cooking, but also for prayer and mediation, that was planned and planted as part of a thesis project.
There was even what they call a Trial Garden with a few palms and sand, it felt like little Indiana landed in Florida!
I guess if I really had to choose…my favorite garden of all would have to be the Ruins Garden. Based on the Glastonbury Abbey, Gardens on the Prairie created a spot so peaceful, well, do you think they would mind if I camped out with a book some sunny afternoon?
I think the most surprising feature of all was the 3,000 square foot outdoor pavilion! We’re talking fancy schmancy outdoor kitchen, where they put on grilling demonstrations, as well as neat seating, an awesome rainwater harvesting garden, and plenty of plants.
It just doesn’t get any better than this! Stop by Gardens on the Prairie in Lowell, Indiana and get your gardening on!
