Our greenhouse department includes superior selections of annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, and houseplants. The greenhouse changes faster than the seasons. In fact, Kennedy’s receives fresh shipments of plants on a daily basis. The experienced greenhouse staff at Kennedy’s is always ready to help you select the perfect plant, re-pot a house plant, plant a custom planter or arrange a plant basket.
Its okay to plant spring, summer or fall.
- Spring is the best time to shop for your favorite plants. Kennedy’s selection of plants peaks in May (so do the number of customers). Some things are sold out by May & June so shop early and often. Nursery plants begin arriving in late March and continue through the fall.
- Summer is hot, but it is okay to plant shrubs and trees during these months if you can water them. Did you know? Most landscape companies plant more plants in summer than any other season.
- Fall is an excellent time to plant trees and shrubs. It is especially beneficial because of the cool weather. Plants need less water during the fall and following spring. By the following summer the roots are more prepared to deal with the heat of summer. Kennedy’s is stocked with a great selection of trees & shrubs from April until October.
Kennedy’s Country Gardens is proud to provide the South Shore with one of the Massachusetts most diversified nurseries. In our search for the newest and best nursery plants, Kennedy’s buys quality woody plants from all over the country from as far away as Maryland, Georgia, California, and Oregon, and of course, New England. April through October, our nursery is stocked with a vast selection of trees, shrubs, vines, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, and roses. You can feel confident buying your trees and shrubs from Kennedy’s because they are backed by our famous 1 year guarantee!
The Difference – Kennedy’s understands the investment you make in your landscape. We want to make sure it is done right. Our specialty is helping you place the right plant in the right place. We are not afraid to tell you the plant you picked out may not live in your conditions. Sometimes we even lose a sale, because our goal is not to see how much we can sell in a day, but to see you come back time after time. Yes, our shrubs and trees are of the highest quality, but it is the information we give you about proper placement and care that is what sets us apart from other nurseries.
Our goal is simple: Kennedy’s wants every plant you buy to live and thrive in your garden for years of enjoyment.
Always Start with A Plan – The staff at Kennedy’s is ready help you design a small area in the yard or help you sketch a plan for the whole yard. Sounds expensive right? Actually it’s free when buy your plants at Kennedy’s!
We encourage you give us as much information as you can. Bring in pictures and sketches and we can help very easily. We’ll even sketch you a custom plan on graph paper.

Kennedy’s Planting Service is an option if you prefer for us to make sure your new purchase is installed professionally.
