Our core business is the development and distribution of seed raised bedding ornamentals. Today Benary is one of the leading breeding companies worldwide in this field.

Our professional quality products are offered to growers and young plant producers through our wide network of distributors and brokers around the world.
Today we export more than 85 % of the seeds into 120 countries worldwide.

Benary stands for premium quality flower seed for efficient young plant production and extraordinary garden performance.

Benary was founded in 1843 in Erfurt (former Eastern Germany), which was the center of the European Ornamental Industry.

After World War II our family business was completely disowned by the socialist government and was refounded by Friedrich Ernst Benary to Hann. Münden, Lower Saxony, in 1946.

Friedrich started from scratch and traveled all over Europe with his bike to collect seed for his new business

We are an independent Global company with German roots. We control our own destiny. We are a family business, and will remain so.

Sustainable profitability is the foundation of our independence and healthy growth. Our main focus is on developing and selling flower varieties for the professional bedding plant market - bringing beauty to the world.

Our competitive edge is in our excellent genetics, our reliable supply chain, and in the unique commitment of our sales force to meet the needs of professional growers.

These goals are supported by the dedication of the excellent Benaryans and our operational agility.
