Servicing the Upper Valley & Surrounding Communities since 1967

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 emphasis on the underused, underappreciated and unknown plants that would complement 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.

We grow some of what we sell right at our Nursery. What we don't grow here we get from many different quality plant suppliers from all around the U.S. and Canada. We select only from growers who have a history of raising quality hardy plants, so you can be confident that E.C. Brown's plants will thrive in New England's rugged and unpredictable climate.

Browse our selection of ornamental trees, shrubs, and evergreens, fruit trees and bushes, herbaceous perennials, and flowering vines.   You'll be surprised with what's available at E. C. Brown's, and inspired to re-imagine your own landscape!
