2003:  Our 22nd Year !!!  Welcome to Kerns Nursery

In 1981 we started our landscape business on the Mountaintop.  We install hardy, excellent quality plant material to landscape your home or business.  We install perennial gardens, trees, shrubs, patios and walkways, foundation plantings and about anything else associated with landscaping.

In 1985 the decision to start a nursery became an obvious one as we needed more control over the kind of plant material we had available to our customers.  We started small and have expanded over the last 15 years to a nursery of some size.  We now carry a wide range of the usual and unusual plant materials and we have tried to  maintain consistent good quality in our plants and a neat and organized appearance in our nursery.  Our new labeling system & information sheets give immediate assistance to our customers.

New 2003:  complete list of annuals and perennials we sell at the nursery.

Specializing in perennial plants (those that come back every year), we offer over 500 varieties.  We specialize in rock garden plants.

You can receive advice and have your questions answered as we try to make ourselves available to our customers as much as possible.  We also carry a full line of herb plants.

Hardy shrub, tea, climbing & florabunda roses are also for sale.  Our newly expanded annual and vegetable area is full of hundreds of varieties of plants.  We include some very unusual and specialty plants along with the more common.

Flower baskets, garden furniture ... and more

You can now see the list of all our Perennials and Annuals.  Just click here!

Over 400 perennials

Our recent expansion has been concentrated in current annual summer gardening trends. COME SEE THE VARIETY OF OUR CREATIVE SPECIALTY PLANTS to make your garden more interesting.
  

An effort has been made to also expand our assortment of hardy shrubs and trees.  We carefully choose them personally, from a variety of growers insuring that they are of high quality and hardy for our area.

We specialize in rock garden plants.

Besides plants, our Country Garden Shop is full of gardening supplies such as fertilizers, hand tools, grass and vegetable seeds, clay pottery, the most unusual baskets and planters, etc, etc. 

We carefully hunt for quality gift & home decorating items that reflect our Mt.Top environment.  Bear & deer and other animals appear in many decorative forms.  Iron & tinware, candles, lamps, garden ornaments & furniture are just some of the items.  

Floral arrangements, special occasion fresh and potted arrangements can be ordered, for weddings, meetings, parties, etc.

Our rose selection has been carefully thought out to bring you the choices that are successful in our Mt.Top environment.
