  • FLORAL WORK:  We do not accept any FRESH flower floral work during the months of March - June.

  • Please understand that our benches are not fully supplied with the more tender plants till the week before Memorial Day as mountain frosts hit our area quite late in the season.

MAY 12, 2002 ... was Mothers Day

Sunday, every mom will receive a free plant of our choice

We have many gifts for mom including great hanging baskets, pansy baskets, and special flowering plants.  We really have some wonderful gifts in our shop too.  Don’t know what to get?  Give a gift certificate!   Bring your mom for coffee and our fresh baked muffins or breads from our weekend coffee bar. Walk through the gardens and nursery and let her choose her own gift.      

ROCK GARDEN WEEKEND
MAY 17 -19, 2002 ...
was repeated
June 1 - 2 due to unexpected mid-May snow in the Catskills.  



Take 20% off all Rock Garden Quarts

Remember spring is the best time to appreciate our Rock Gardens.   We welcome you to tour through them and to see our new running stream rock garden.  Our specialty is rock garden perennials and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have on how to get started with creating a specialty garden of your own.   With the proper planning and installation, a rock garden requires minimal maintenance.  We will also give away an appropriate plant with every purchase from our great selection of Rock Garden Perennials this weekend.  

MAY 24 - 27 .... MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

 

We will be open till 6 P.M. on Friday & Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The normal rule on the Mountaintop is that it should now be safe to plant most tender annuals.  Hopefully fear of frost is past, ESPECIALLY after our unexpected and unusual mid-May snows.  We are quite busy this weekend and Jewett weather forecasts (on our website) are good.
 

Please place orders by fax (518 734-3543), mail, or by e-mail (kernsnursery@aol.com).  Orders a head of time will be helpful. 
Please call to schedule a pickup time.  We will have your plants, soils, mulch, etc ready for you upon your arrival.  We do the best we can to fill your orders.   We can only hold plants till our mutually agreed upon time.  If you are delayed with pick-up please call and let us know.  
JUNE 8 - 9 ... WHAT’S NEW IN ANNUALS?  A LOT!!!

 

Discounted specials will occur all weekend!!! 

 

This weekend we will feature some of our new varieties of specialty annuals.  We search out and bring to our nursery the great new plants the industry offers every year.  The hottest trend now is specialty annuals, tender perennials, and even tropicals.  We use the best suppliers in the industry and there seems to be no stopping these great varieties of garden worthy plants that come out every year.  This year is no exception.  Our collection of amazing summer flowering and foliage plants is beyond compare.   Don’t be afraid to experiment!  We welcome you to come and seek out the new.   Starting on JUNE 8th you will be able to sign up for our special Father’s Day drawing for a free Crab Apple Tree.  
JUNE 16 ... is Father's Day

For every pop that comes to the nursery on Sunday we have a free gift of poppies! 

We have great trees and shrubs that make wonderful Father’s day gifts; or give Dad a gift certificate to choose his own.   
From June 8th through 3 P.M. on Fathers Day we will be having you sign up for a chance to win a crab apple tree.  Drawing will be at 3p.m. 
(If there is no response from the winner to our phone call within 24 hrs., we will have a second drawing and the first name will forfeit.)
   
JUNE 22 - 23 ...  SORRY DEER – NO FOOD FOR YOU!

Mention this interest to us at the nursery and you will get a free foxglove  – that you can feed to the deer – only kidding - they won’t eat it.

This weekend we will be featuring some perennial and annual plants that the deer just don’t like and hopefully just plain hate. 
I’ve had
people tell me that the deer will eat about anything when desperate enough, but here will be a few suggestions that will probably work.  

We will also be offering some solutions that might help you control the deer if your plantings are not limited to “deer proof” plants. 
 

JUNE 24 - 30 ... CONTAINER GARDENING WEEK

Bring your porch boxes, pots and baskets in this week and we will plant them for you by the next day.  Pay for the plants and the soil and the labor is free.

Bring your porch boxes, pots and baskets in this week and we will plant them for you by the next day.  Pay for the plants and the soil and the labor is free
Or plant your own right here at the nursery.  We will be glad to help you choose your plants and show you how to make great combination planters.  A little fertilizer and water and you are ready to go!   We have a great variety of simple & unusual planters of terracotta, cast stone, cedar, fiberglass, plastic, iron, wood, etc. here for sale at the nursery.  (only for planters personally brought in and picked up  - this week only)

JULY 20 - 21 ...  DAYLILY WEEKEND 


 

All of our daylilies will be reduced 20%

We carry many handsome daylilies including many premium varieties.

If you properly select plants with varying bloom times a bed of daylilies will give color all summer long.  The colors range from almost white, light yellow to gold , melon to vivid orange, pinks, rose, reds, burgundy, lavenders, violets and more.  Some repeat bloom.  Some are ruffled.  Some are bicolors.  Their flowers are crisp and neat and the plants require simple cultural conditions.  Daylilies work well individually planted, in small groups, or in mass plantings.  They also are an easy care, tall, ground cover for banks.     

JULY 27 - 29 ...  HOSTA WEEKEND


All hosta will be reduced 20%. 
This year with every purchase of a hosta take 20% off a companion astilbe of your choice.

We carry some great varieties and some large plants.   A comforting plant for the shade or partial shade.  Many will also take a good deal of sun.  I have really come to love this group of plants.  Flowers on perennials are short term, but these great leaves in varying texture and color are amazing and last all through out the season.

Hosta and astilbe are two of the best shade garden companions.  They absolutely look wonderful planted in mass plantings together in slightly shady locations.  Click here to see some of the many varieties we are offering this year.  

SEPTEMBER 1 - 4 ... LABOR DAY WEEKEND


PERENNIAL, SHRUB & TREE SALE:
 All perennials will be 20% off.  This is great savings on fully grown plants.


We reduce the price on the full range of our perennial line only twice a year.  Now and again on Columbus Day weekend.
 

We will absolutely have a great stock of perennial plants from which to choose.  We do not have a goal each year to sell out our perennials.  We want to keep most of our collection available throughout the growing season.  And September is a perfect time to plant or install whole new garden beds.  No it is not too late.

CHRISTMAS SEASON

Our shop will once again overflow with some great Holiday decorations, gifts, ornaments, and many unique items for both home and garden.  We carefully chose our entire stock and hope you will find some time to see what we are offering for sale this holiday season. 

We assure you that our N.Y. State grown Christmas trees are very fresh, healthy and well-shaped.  I still hand-tie all our wreaths the old fashioned way, by carefully selecting, cutting, and wiring local balsam and sometimes incorporating blue-berried juniper and incense cedar.  From small to large, our  wreaths are beyond compare. We incorporate some 15-20 varieties of pinecones and other natural and tasteful decorative accents into our wreaths, baskets, centerpieces, swags,  & Yule logs.  We produce plain, simply decorated and ornate arrangements/wreaths for a variety of tastes and situations.   We will continue to have evergreen roping available for sale and  beautiful poinsettias in red, white and pink in several sizes.  For those of you who have never been to our shop at Christmas Time, we think you will be surprised at our holiday decorating, entertaining and gift choices.   

November 29 - December 1 ... OPEN HOUSE

Share some holiday cookies (our home made shortbread cookies have become quite popular), coffee and hot chocolate in our shop.   You can view our shop bursting with holiday items.  There will be a great selection of our handmade wreaths, swags, baskets and more.  Choose your tree and bring it home or we will store it for you.  Bring in baskets and we will fill them with holiday greens.  And this is also a great time to place special orders to meet your specific needs and taste. 

Don’t forget that you will also find a great Christmas gifts including choices from our new jewelry line and some unique stocking stuffers.  Also home and holiday decorative figurines, collectables, candles, serving dishes, paper products, ornaments, and much more.
