My name is Boomer by Boomer the Garden Center Dog

           Hi! My name is Boomer and I am the garden center dog. This is my first blog. I follow Sue around the garden center from January till April. I am the most wonderful and beautiful golden retriever.Oh yes, and the best behaved dog! I love being spoiled and eating the plants in the greenhouse! The grasses are the best! My favorite grass is the Fireworks Fountain Grasgarden center dog, planting box, peat moss, golden retrievers. They get real upset when I eat that because it's brand new or something. They all look the same to me! They are so tasty! I do lots of work here greeting people, chewing pots, walking on plant tables,and digging in the mud in the potting room. I also work very hard chasing away the bunnies in the back nursery area. Please come and see me in fireworks fountain grass, jensen nursery and garden center, winnipeg, greenhouse, annual grasses, outdoor container potsthe greenhouse! If you find me too big and friendly I can sit in the lunch room(yummy) and check out the lunches! Please come visit me and check out the wonderful greenhouse. See you soon!

Gardening Seminar - Gardening 101 with Karl Sorensen


Anyone in Winnipeg who has ventured to our nursery and garden center has most likely met Karl Sorensen. He is referred to as "Mr Jensen" as often as he is called "Karl"! Karl's enthusiasm for gardening and design is apparent to all who meet him! When he isn't out back in our nursery area taking care of all our plants, he is in the garden centre area helping customers plan their yards. He cares about each customers yard project as if it were his own.

Karl will also be giving a sneak peak of some of the exciting new plants we will have for sale in at our garden center this spring!
