Christmas at Kennedy’s!


Christmas is one of our favorite and busiest times at Kennedy’s Country Gardens.  We specialize in fresh, local greens and unique custom design.  We carry up to ten different varieties of cut trees, most of which are also sourced locally.  And our seasonal houseplants are always top quality.

Our creative team sets up shop in our largest greenhouse to begin creating custom designed wreaths, pot fillers, containers, baskets, swags, and roping.  Our sources provide us with the freshest local and native greens, twigs, and berries available.  Additional sources supply more exotic items to round out our selection.  People love juniper and winterberry for the lovely berries they provide.  Curly willow branches provide an interesting focal point for containers, as do red- and yellow-twig dogwood.  Birch poles in different diameters and lengths add a stunning, architectural look to containers.

The seaside theme is a favorite on the South Shore.  For themed wreaths, it is our top seller.  Another favorite style is fruit, perhaps because it transitions from Thanksgiving to Christmas so well.  Our natural-style items are decorated with berries, pods, and cones.  And traditionalists love our classic red and green designs.  Most of our pieces are decorated with festive (and weatherproof) bows that are also hand-made here at Kennedy’s.

Many customers will come in and select coordinating wreaths, roping, and pot fillers for their urns so that they can make a statement at their entryway, porch, or the entire front of their house.  Other customers come in year after year with a custom order for a wreath, swag, or container.  Members of our creative team are happy to work with customers to design something new, to replicate a favorite look from the past, or to use existing containers in a design.  And, for the do-it-yourselfer, plain wreaths and bunches of greens, twigs, and berries, as well as cones, decorations, and ribbon are also available for sale.

For many, their Christmas tree is the piece de resistance of all of their holiday decorating.  Fraser fir trees have replaced Balsam as the Christmas tree of choice among our customers.  Fraser is almost as fragrant as Balsam, but the needles are a darker green and the branches hold the needles much longer.  We usually carry about nine different varieties of fresh cut Christmas trees and we provide a chart in our tree yard that lists the characteristics of each variety so that customers can choose a tree or wreath with the qualities that matter most to them.  We pride ourselves on giving you the best information and the best customer service.  For the ultimate in fresh and green, consider a living tree from our nursery that you can enjoy for years to come.

In our Garden Center, you can pick up a tree stand, a tray to go under your tree, tree preservative, lights, tree disposal bags, and many other items that are crucial to the success of your holiday decorating.  And, in our Christmas Shop, you will find ornaments ranging in style from find chic and shimmery to woodsy and whimsical.  Choose from seaside-, woodland-, garden-, and antique-themed decorations.

Of course our greenhouses are packed with the finest selection of poinsettias and other Christmas plants.  For the traditionalist, a 12-inch red poinsettia.  For the customer who wants a twist, we have a variety of pink and variegated poinsettias.  For Hanukkah or for someone who wants something entirely different for Christmas, try a blue poinsettia.  Christmas cacti, cyclamen, paperwhites, amaryllis plants, and orchids are other options that pack a punch of color for the holidays.  Dressed up with greens, ornaments, and bows, and placed in a beautiful pot, these are not your box store Christmas plants!  They are gorgeous for decorating or for gift-giving.
