Christmas is one of our favorite and busiest times at Kennedy’s Country Gardens. We specialize in fresh, local greens and fresh 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.
Starting in early November, our creative team sets up shop in our largest greenhouse to begin creating custom designed wreaths, pot fillers, custom containers, wall and floor 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.
Choose from coordinated custom items in Seaside, Fruit, Natural, or Traditional styles, or have our designers create something that expresses your unique style. We are happy to incorporate your containers, ornaments, and decorations. Most of our pieces are decorated with festive (and weatherproof) bows hand-made here at Kennedy’s. Whether you like the natural look of burlap, an elegant shimmering metallic, country plaid, or traditional Christmas Red, you’ll be sure to find a ribbon that suits your fancy. We’ll whip up beautiful bows for your wreaths, containers, and baskets. Many people come each year just to order a bow to use as a tree topper. 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. For those who are trying to keep their Christmas sustainable and local, it’s good to know that many of our fresh cut Christmas trees come from Massachusetts. Choose from up to ten different varieties. We provide a chart in our tree yard that lists the characteristics of our different varieties so that you can choose a tree or wreath with the qualities that matter most to you. While making that crucial decision, the whole family can warm up with some hot cider from our garden center.
For those with smaller spaces, there’s no need to forego a Christmas tree. A small Alberta spruce in a pot can eventually be planted outside. In our greenhouses, choose from dwarf cypresses, cone shaped lavender and rosemary trees, Norfolk Island Pines, or topiaries of ivy, myrtle, or eugenia. Dressed up with festive winter greens, a colorful bow, and a beautiful pot, these plants provide a beautiful focal point in the home. Our selection of poinsettias is unparalleled, ranging from classic red in all sizes to sparkly blue for those who want to put a twist on the tradition. Christmas cacti, cyclamen, paperwhites, and amaryllis plants are other options that pack a punch of color for the holidays and are gorgeous for decorating or for gift-giving. These are not your big box store Christmas plants!
And finally, no trip to Kennedy’s during the holidays is complete without a swing through our Christmas Shop. Our gift, ornaments, décor, and housewares styles range from whimsical to elegant and are made from materials including seashells, driftwood, crystal, and mercury glass. Our selection includes seaside-, woodland-, and garden-themed items.
