Step into our Paradise!

 Don’t get fooled by Mother nature, be cautious of planting annuals now and til the beginning of June & don’t worry about those perennials being slow -  gardening requires patience, …   but do get busy with your Garden’s clean-up to do list, turning and raking the soil, mixing in some good soil nutrients and mulch / compost.
 
STEP INSIDE our green house and you will be inspired by the display of flower colours & leaf textures. You will find your ole favourites & some new lovely annuals.   Get inspired to create your own containers by seeing what the greenhouse elves have been up to;  you can bring in your pots and plant them up in side our greenhouse or leave your pots with us and request a custom planting.  Our tabletops are full with hundreds of plants  and the walkways are lined with hanging pots and ground containers readily filled and waiting for your deck.    
 
 greenhouse, flowers, annuals, tropicals, succulents, hanging baskets
 
TRENDING …..   “Tropical plants & Grasses”;  for that a dramatic look (Thriller):   they can provide an immediate lush green to any entrance way & will thrive outdoors in our summers.  The tropical plants  can be brought into your house in fall but first must be sprayed for bugs.    
 
Eg:  Big elephant ears,  ivies, ferns, palm tree, succulents & catus, hibiscus, numerous grasses, cannas, climbing vines …..

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!

Sun, Shrubs, Trees, Soil, Stone, and Flowers galore!

The sun is shining! Spring is finally here! Everytime I look out the window a truck is driving up with a fresh load of shrubs, trees, evergreens, and more! We are in the process of building a new system to display and care for the trees! We also have some very hard working guys potting up truckloads of bareroot trees and shrubs. By tomorrow they will be done, and will start bagging more mulch, riverstone, limestone, shale, soil, and what ever else we can bring them! Jennifer is running around trying to put up signs as quickly as the plants arrive. Chelsey is back for her second year running out to greet all the customers!Laura is taking care of all the annuals and baskets in the greenhouse. Karl AKA Mr Jensen is busy planning and designing the outdoor shrub area. Drop by and check out all the excitement. It may not be organized quite yet, but the plants are here just waiting for a new home. I now have a PDF version of our catalogues available online. There is the shrub and tree plant list, and the perennial list. Just email me at tammy@jensennursery.com  and I will send it to you! Happy gardening!~ Tammy
