Spring at Jensen's Garden Center!

Well this is it - Spring is here! The greenhouse is looking like a tropical house. I went in there briefly today...closed my eyes and pretended I was in a tropical paradise! Then reality set in and I got back to work getting ready for our first spring seminars this saturday! The false banana plants, elephant ears, and cannas are as big as they were by the end of May last year! The containers are starting to fill out, and people have already been buying the ones with the most flowers on! Our greenhouse is set up, the showroom is filled with new giftware and pottery, and all the bark and soil products have arrived! We finally got claybuster in this year! You mix it into your flower beds to break that clay up! Greg has been out doing estimates and consultations for us. Things are shaping up to be a great year! I look forward to seeing all the familiar faces again this year! All the great staff that were with us last year are all returning for another season! This is the first year I have not had to do any hiring at the garden center. Thank you to everyone that has applied for a job over the last few months! We can only hope for a extremely busy season which would mean more job openings!!

This saturday we are having seminars! The first 2 have booked up, but we have openings for the 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30 seminars. They are free so drop in and take advantage of some great gardening advice. The 2:30 seminar has just been added! Grant Dunn will be coming by to answer all your questions about how to use all of the fertilizers, chemicals, and other garden products that we carry! He is extremely knowledgable and highly recommend this seminar if you have any disease, insect, or general concerns with your lawn, gardens, trees, and shrubs! If you are interested in the first 2 seminars email me and I can let you know if there are any cancellations over the next few days! IF YOU ARE NOT ON OUR EMAIL LIST SIGN UP TODAY. YOU WILL RECEIVE ADVANCE NOTICE OF OUR NEXT FREE SEMINARS! (we book up fast so if you are on our email list you get first chance at attending!)

I was going to take some pictures of the new giftware, and the greenhouse today but ran out of time! So the pictures below are a week or two old! The plants have grown alot in the last 2 weeks! Myself and all my staff look forward to helping you with all your gardening needs this spring!

Bill Dowie - Ecoplicity Environmental - FREE Gardening Seminar

Bill Dowie had a fantastic time at Jensen's Nursery last Saturday, April 9th, 2011. He was very pleased to see a great turn-out of fellow gardening
enthusiasts (and maybe more of the 'male variety' could show up next time - but bring your own lawn chair - we were pretty well sold-out).

Tammy and Bill envision this sort of lecture series to be a regular event - timed around the slower periods of the nursery, of course. So, if there are
any particular topics you would like talked about, Tammy, Susan, and Bill will be happy to research and coordinate some information; even if it is just
a web-site feature.

Bill would like to thank all those who attended - tell your friends to join the Jensen's Nursery e-mail list, and they will also have the opportunity to sit
in on the next Jensen's Seminar Series! Great Gardening!

For more information on Bill's journey as an environmental consultant, please visit his profile on Linked In, a professional profile web-site. His public
profile can be found at Don't forget that Bill will be an in-house
consultant throughout the summer at Jensen's - Tammy will keep you posted. And this year, Bill is also the designer-in-residence for Prairie Flora - a
true Manitoba native plant nursery. Both of these companies will offer special deals in conjunction with using Bill's design 'walk-about' services.

Bill has an ecological landscape design-build company, Ecoplicity Environmental, and lives in Sunny St. James – his family property has five backyard
naturalization certificates from local, national, and international conservation organizations.

For the last several years, Bill has been informally working towards a Masters degree with the faculties of Engineering, Architecture, and Environment
at the University of Manitoba; he holds a baccalaureate degree in Applied Economics, as well as an Applied Management Certificate. Recently he has
obtained a Masters Certificate in Project management jointly offered by York University and the University of Winnipeg - and is pursuing his Project
Management Professional (PMP) designation. Bill is well versed in the language of green buildings and the surrounding site, as he is a LEED
Accredited Professional, holds a certificate in Permaculture Design, and is a Master Gardener candidate.

Bill works professionally as an independent environmental management consultant. He is an advisor for Junior Achievement Manitoba, the
Volunteer-Chair for the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce's Sustainability Working Group, and serves on the Mayor’s Environmental Advisory
Committee, as well as the City of Winnipeg Museums Board. When he is not helping people re-invent their landscapes to be beautifully in harmony
with nature, he plays organized touch football.
