Last year our friends Brian and Susan Person lost their daughter Maya on 
November 7th . Maya was an amazing, compassionate young woman that lived every day to the fullest. In her memory, her Mom and Dad have created Maya's Day. It was Maya's wish to spend this Christmas with Family and Friends giving back to those in need at Christmas. To honour Maya's wish Brian and Susan are encouraging everyone to be part of Maya's Day. On Saturday December 16th, please volunteer or donate to a charitable organization in your community. Some special charities have been highlighted in conjunction with Maya's Day are:


Feed My Lambs Street Mission Inc.
Kildonan United Church - 187 Kilbride Ave - West Kildonan 
Christmas Cheer Board - 250-1395 Ellice Avenue 
Siloam Mission - 300 Princess 
Winnipeg Harvest - 1085 Winnipeg Avenue 
Lighthouse Mission - 669 Main Street

At Jensen Nursery we will be celebrating Maya’s Day this coming weekend.  On Saturday December 16, 2017 we will be hosting a one hour Christmas Concert from 11 am to 12pm.  Please take time out of your busy day to relax and reflect on our loved ones that are with us and the ones that are not.  We will be taking donations for Siloam Mission.  We will also be donating 10% of our Sales from Saturday and Sunday.

Our condolences to Brian and Susan. May you always hold Maya's Spirit and your memories of her close to your heart.
The Jensen Family and staff.

DIY Winter Container Garden

Creating your own winter container garden is simple;
Follow the guidelines below or get a head-start by using one of our pre-made inserts. 
 If your front door containers are frozen, you can try thawing them by pouring hot water into them or if possible move them indoors for a couple of days.
then you can recycle your old soil;   (cut back your plants to soil level)
Pop into our garden shop and pick up an insert from us,  either premade or create one yourself. 
We make our winter inserts by adding a combination of SAND & OASIS’ to fill the container then you insert a different greens into the container & make as full as you like…  Water well so OASIS and container can now freeze up.  
Mix and match textures from winter greens. We have white pine, Frasier fir, boxwood, cedar, etc., & winter holly.  Use strong, thick branches for height, and floppy branches for flow. 
Add height and interest with branches, pinecones, birch poles, berries, or dogwood or lotus pods etc .
Add lights if you want
Protect from heavy snow fall, or shake snow free after a storm
We take custom orders for winter arrangements, centerpieces and wreaths.
Winter insert pieces are made from natural materials then have decorated to your liking.
