Horsford Gardens and Nursery/Distinctive Landscaping: Charlie Proutt

Horsford Gardens & Nursery is located in beautiful Charlotte, Vermont. Local gardeners have trusted us with growing for their landscapes since 1893. We are proud to use integrated and sustainable horticultural practices, and employ talented growers from our local community. We specialize in growing shade and evergreen trees, flowering shrubs, fruit trees, and perennials in field-dug and container sizes. Our restored antique glass greenhouses are home to annual flowers, vegetable plants, and kitchen herbs each season.

The Garden Center is open to all and stocked with compost, topsoil, bulbs, pottery, and tools. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to help with landscaping consulting and mulch and soil delivery. Ever-in-bloom botanical gardens are free for all to tour for inspiration. The gardens are home to art and education events throughout the season. During the holidays, we make and ship fresh Christmas wreaths and centerpieces around the country. Our holiday gift shop offers Vermont Christmas trees, cut greens, holiday bulbs, hand-curated gifts and more.

Based at the nursery, Distinctive Landscaping offers a wide scope of landscape architecture and design services for projects large and small. Their team also provides high-quality plant and hardscape installation at competitive prices. Bringing together experienced landscape architects, professional installation crews, and Horsford’s resources, Distinctive Landscaping has designed and built landmark landscapes throughout the Vermont and New York regions.
