Long Weekend Flowers

Download Attachment...
 Well, ..we are well under way both inside the greenhouse & outside @ Jensen’s Nursery, you can feel the excitement as many gardeners awaited their initial planting this May long weekend. Remember though it is early to plant annuals and most vegetables outside. There is still a chance of frost. Cold hardy onions, potatoes, and garlic bulbs could go in now for sure. If you a way to cover in case of frost or move containers into garages. Then plant away but watch the weather!
Our greenhouse is dazzling with many of our hanging baskets spilling over with colour and gardeners both new and old have been filling their shopping boxes with favourite plants.  A simple rule for planting pots is to have 3 different types of plants; the thriller being the focal or tallest plant in the container, the fillers should be of complimentary colours and shorter than the thriller, and last but not least, the spiller to add the dramatic draping of colour to your container.
The outside area has display tables of rows of perennials that will continue to change as they grow til  blooming and many display areas of shrubs and trees that are just now waking up as they fully leaf out.
Whether you have a shade spot or a sunny spot we have some great suggestions to help build your containers, gardens and landscaping.
Gardening can be a very rewarding activity. With a little time and effort, you can watch your creativity blossom and your ideal outdoor space flower.

Flowers for Mother's Day!

 Come look and get inspired !


The new greenhouse is filled to the brim with every colour of a rainbow; our baskets are spilling over with eye popping annuals, along with  luscious planters and never ending rows of herbs, veggies, tropical and annuals line our tables.    


For your convenience, drop off your containers and we will do your planting or stay and plant up yourself in our planting corner, the cost to you will be the dirt and plants used – and leave the mess behind. 


If you have trouble finding the right annual for the right place; stop and look at our many species of Coleus; they are a versatile performer which offers multitude of options in colours, leaf shapes, from trailing to big bushy mounds, let the colours of a coleus play off other plants.  


Coleus are annuals;   can be found for full sun to almost full shade depending on colour selection;  no soil issues but drainage is.

Care of them is easy, steady watering and feeding is best for healthy bushy plants and they love a good pinch,  (removal of their flower spikes and a set of two of the leaves ).    




The perfect gift for mother’s day (Sunday May 14th ) , how about a gift card,
