The E.C. Browns' Nursery


2018 is upon us (I think!!) and it's time to start thinking about planting. We again have a huge selection of trees, fruits, shrubs, evergreens, and perennials, big and small. Please use this website as a reference for plants that will work here in Vermont and New Hampshire.   As you may see some things are dated...and we apologize for that.....when time allows we will get it updated to a new site. 



Our Nursery was founded in 1967 by Elmer and Bertha Brown who brought 7 plants from Connecticut to Thetford, Vermont and a vision for a small "mom and pop" nursery and landscaping business that would serve the Upper Valley. Growing, selecting, selling and installing hardy northern plants for the Vermont and New Hampshire climate became the primary focus of our business...with an emphisis on the underused, underappreciated and unknown plants that would compliment the tried and true. Now into our 3rd generation and after almost 50 years of business, we at E. C. Browns' Nursery continue to serve the Upper Valley and beyond with top quality hardy plants and unsurpassed landscaping services.


Landscaping Services

 Design and installation of complete landscape projects, both residential and commercial, continues to be a large focus of our business. During the landscape season, we generally have 2-3 crews of professional landscapers installing high-quality plant material throughout the Upper Valley region. Right now our crews have a cumulative 75 years+ experience in planting and maintaining trees and shrubs.
