We all know that weather patterns are changing, that horticulture breeding trends are exciting, and your homeowner needs vary as your family dynamic shifts; this seminar will provide insight on how to take advantage of these aspects through the lessons-learned your garden is providing to you this Fall and Winter.

FREE SPRING GARDENING SEMINARS AT JENSEN NURSERY AND GARDEN CENTER

10:00 AM Gardening  for Dummies – By Jennifer Fletcher
Gardening advice presented in a simple easy to understand format

Healthy, happy and hardy.  Pampered, pretty and pruned.  These will be the words you use to describe the plants in your yard after you have attended this informative seminar.

11:00 AM 3-D Gardening – By Bill Dowie
Designing to maximize all the Space in your yard and garden
 
Some adventurous gardeners may have the knowledge and skills to move vertically in their garden, but 3-D gardening is so much more.  Inter-spaces, nooks and crannies, cracks, edges, layers... these are key concepts to make your garden beautiful while increasing the amount of usable space you can plant all your flowers and vegetables.  Think you have run out of room?  Wondering how to increase bio-diversity in your small yard?  This first of two seminars will introduce you to spacial concepts of the space-time continuum you may have not thought about.

12:00 NOON FREE LUNCH

 12:30 PM Critters Anomynous – By Susan Jensen Stubbe and Tammy Jensen
 An Open Panel Discussion on how to keep wildlife from eating your trees and plants

Does wildlife affect your plant’s health? An open panel discussion on methods both natural and chemical to keep your yard wildlife free. Audience participation appreciated!  Instead of waiting till it is too late be proactive and prevent the damage that can happen. Help others with any solutions you may have. Enjoy a healthy happy yard – not one ravaged by squirrels, voles, deers, and rabbits!

1:30 PM 4-D Gardening – By Bill Dowie
Thinking about the aspects of Time for your short and long-term garden plans
 
Time is fleeting and as humans we are caught in a linear perception of time passing second by second, year by year.  In Nature, the concept of time is irrelevant.  Nature is dictated by cycles and ebbs and flows of matter and energy.  So how do we reconcile such philosophical ideas to make a beautiful garden?  This seminar will explore the themes of legacy planting, time-framing your designs, plant succession, and the young-to-old transition of your human and animal visitors to your yard (that rabbit seems like it's 20 years old!).  This second of two seminars will introduce you to temporal concepts of the space-time continuum you may have not thought about.

Email tammy@jensennursery.com to register. Specify the seminars you wish to attend and if you will be joining us for lunch. Limited seating so register early

One of the most common design questions I get is "What will grow in a shady spot that blooms? "I will be going over all the shrubs and perennials we carry for the shade that does flower! Bring sketches, pictures, or measurements of the shady area you want to plant in. At the end of the seminar we can help you design a small shade garden, or help you find the right shade perennial for a particular location.
