Val's Christmas Tree in January! Bird Haven!

 Happy New Year!
Here’s a picture of what I did with my Jensens christmas tree ( a 6 foot premium frasier this
year) ­ yes I know ­ not exactly as enviromentally friendly as turning it into mulch ­ but so very
much more entertaining!
I decorated it with pine cones dipped in peanut butter then rolled in black oil seeds, unshelled
peanuts, and some leftover baked goods .The sparrows also enjoy leftover porridge as well
especially if it has cranberries in it­ which I also included .
My visitors include many different species of sparrows, chickadees and bluejays
I have not seen the woodpecker on there but I know he is around!

3 Weeks of Christmas!

Download Attachment...
I love Christmas! We are very busy and there is lots to do. And we have Cookies! north pole, christmas shop, christmas tree shop, swags, wreaths, fresh greens, jensen nursery
It was nice to see some of our “regular” customers and great to see some newcustomers this past weekend.  
 
We have delivered quite a few Christmas trees already, so I thought it was time to give you some specific care instructions to keep your tree beautiful throughout the season.
 
If we have done a fresh cut at the bottom of your tree, it is important to get that tree into water within an hour. If we have just dropped your tree off at our house, you will need to get a saw and take an inch off the bottom of your tree. This allows the tree to draw up water from the stand, just like a fresh bouquet of flowers. In the first days, your tree will drink a lot of water, so you have to check a couple of times a day to replenish the water in the stand. This water intake will slow down so that you will only have to add water every day or two. Please think about closing hot air vents that are near the tree. This will help. We don’t recommend anything but plain water. No sugar, 7 up etc. The most important idea here is that you don’t let that fresh cut be above the water line. 
 
If you haven’t received your tree yet, this might be a good time to consider a new stand. We have some in the greenhouse, that are extremely easy to use and hold a lot of WATER!!!
 
We have another open house this weekend, so stop by and grab a Poinsettia, or a cup of Glog!!! And I am making some more Fresh wreaths.

Twas the Month Before Christmas!

Twas the Month Before Christmas by Arlene Wheeler

Twas the month before Christmas and all through the Greenhouse
The staff was a-stirring, even our mouse.
The swags were all hung in the Greenhouse with care,
We knew that our customers soon would be there.

The children were excited to see all the trees
While visions of Santa tickled them with glee.
And Tammy in her Santa hat and Susan in her boots
Were dreaming of the day that they’d be thinking of roots!!!

Tammy, Susan and the staff at Jensen’s are keeping busy right now hanging and delivering the Christmas trees, creating wonderful Christmas centerpieces, indoor and outdoor containers, swags and wreaths for all of our customers.  We offer free delivery of our Christmas trees all across the city and surrounding areas, you can’t beat that!  There is Balsam Fir for the people that are looking for the sweet evergreen smell of Christmas and Frasier Fir or Nordman Fir for others that are looking for a tree that will last past New Years.  We also offer Scotch Pine, White Pine, Canaan Fir, Douglas Fir and Manitoba Spruce.  Manitoba Tips, 3 – 5 feet are also available for only $10.00!  Bring in your Christmas tree stand (or if you need a stand, we have high quality stands for sale), and we will cut your tree and put it in the stand for you.  If you are not able to come out, give us a call or send us an email to let us know what kind of tree you would like and we will deliver it for free and set it up for you!  Ask us for a fresh cut if you are planning on putting up the tree upon delivery or soon after. Then, water, water, water, never let the water go below the cut as it will dry, the tree will be unable to take up water and your needles will soon be dropping.  The tree will be very thirsty for the first few days but will then settle down. A Christmas tree bag is also provided with each tree to provide for easy, no mess removal after the Christmas season.  Put the used tree out in the yard for the birds to enjoy!
We accept donations and Blue boxes for Winnipeg Harvest as well as donations of pennies for “Pennies from Heaven”.  These donations can be picked up when we deliver your tree. 
We also carry fresh wreaths, boughs, branches and garland to decorate your home as well as Christmas craft supplies, Christmas décor and of course, great gifts for the gardener or bird lover in your house.  Drop in to say hello and enjoy the wonders of the Christmas Season!

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2013!

Sue's First Blog - by Sue the Other Sister!

Well, I decided it was time. It’s only been a year since my dear sister, Tammy asked me to write a blog. With my track record I figure I’m right on schedule. I can hardly believe that it’s time to make the switch from Landscaping to selling Christmas trees.

We’ve been having a lot of fun finishing the last few jobs. The last two weeks have been working at the Youth for Christ Building at Main and Higgins. It absolutely amazes me that you can have so many trades people, trucks and equipment on one site and nobody hits anything. This particular site being down town was the dreaded site of the year. Due to the lack of parking, vehicle and people traffic I was picturing this site as a nightmare. I was pleasantly surprised that everything when extremely well. The trades people and site supervisors have been amazing. All the different trades have worked together with efficiency and grace. There was not a day where I felt we were hindering someone else’s job. Everyone seemed to work together making sure that they were not undoing each other’s work.

We even got a few surprises. Shortly after remarking that I seemed to have a horseshoe stuck in a particular part of my body. This was said because everything on site fell into place just perfectly. From the tree delivery, soil drop offs to the excavator John who helped us out. Mark and Scott actually dug up an old Horseshoe. It looks like it may be from the early to mid 1900’s. It will soon be hanging above our garage door with hopes that it will continue to bring us all more luck.

Well as we wrap up our landscaping season another time is upon us. Yes it is here!!!! I’ve been waiting for this all year. IT’S FINALLY HERE, IT’S FINALLY HERE. It’s time for me to go from the hardhat, safety vest wearing Landscape Girl to...... CRAFT GIRL. Yes that’s right CRAFT GIRL. Instead of thinking about tree planting, semi loads of soil and mountains of Cedar Bark. My head in filling with designs for Outdoor Containers, Center Pieces, and Wreaths, and of course Bow making. So please come by with your containers or ideas and let us help you add some beauty to your Christmas.

Or stop by and pick out the perfect Fresh Christmas Tree. We have an amazing selection of Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir, Noble fir, Nordman Fir and some Manitoba Spruce. You can shop indoors, pick your tree and have us deliver it for free. ( within Winnipeg, Oak Bluff, Sanford or LaSalle )

Have a Happy Christmas Season!!!
