DIY Winter Container Garden
outdoor arrangement, front door decor, christmas container
Creating your own winter container garden is simple;
 
Follow the guidelines below or get a head-start by using one of our pre-made inserts. 
 
 If your front door containers are frozen, you can try thawing them by pouring hot water into them or if possible move them indoors for a couple of days.
 
then you can recycle your old soil;   (cut back your plants to soil level)
 
OR
 
Pop into our garden shop and pick up an insert from us,  either premade or create one yourself. 
 
We make our winter inserts by adding a combination of SAND & OASIS’ to fill the container then you insert a different greens into the container & make as full as you like…  Water well so OASIS and container can now freeze up.  
 
Mix and match textures from winter greens. We have white pine, Frasier fir, boxwood, cedar, etc., & winter holly.  Use strong, thick branches for height, and floppy branches for flow. 
Add height and interest with branches, pinecones, birch poles, berries, or dogwood or lotus pods etc .
Add lights if you want
Protect from heavy snow fall, or shake snow free after a storm
 
 
We take custom orders for winter arrangements, centerpieces and wreaths.
 
Winter insert pieces are made from natural materials then have decorated to your liking.

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!!!
