Tour Our Grounds

Local Destination

Rapidly becoming known as a "local destination", Labour of Love offers more than the typical small nursery; display gardens, tours, gift and craft shop, 30 varieties of homemade jams and jellies (from local fruits), handwoven articles of apparel and for the home. And more…

Open year-round, our themed guest rooms are filled with genuine antiques and botanical garden-sized unusual tropical plants.

"Labour of Love Landscaping and Nursery, located in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, specializes in perennials and bulbs that are hardy to Zone 3 (Zone 2 is tundra)…Kate Butler, the cheerful proprietor, is one of those relentlessly creative people who are full of surprises. She grows all her own plants from seed or division; she has a taste for the unusual and "oddball stuff…" she finds amusement in growing survivors that are ‘not supposed to do well up here’…"
