Maya's Day

 Maya's Day
Join us on December 15th & 16th for Maya's Day
 
Our friends Brian and Susan Person lost their daughter Maya on November 7th, 2016. Maya was an amazing, compassionate young woman that lived every day to the fullest. In her memory, her Mom and Dad have created Maya's Day. It was Maya's wish to spend Christmas with Family and Friends giving back to those in need at Christmas. To honour Maya's wish Brian and Susan are encouraging everyone to be part of Maya's Day. On Saturday December 15th, please volunteer or donate to a charitable organization in your community. Some special charities have been highlighted in conjunction with Maya's Day are:
Feed My Lambs Street Mission Inc.

Christmas Cheer Board - 250-1395 Ellice Avenue

We will also be offering a 15% discount both days on all items in our indoor showroom and 15% off all pre made Outdoor Christmas Containers. If you are done all your Christmas Shopping and want to stop by with a monetary donation, we'd love to see you.
Our condolences to Brian and Susan. May you always hold Maya's Spirit and your memories of her close to your heart.
The Jensen Family and staff.

Where oh where is our fall?

Fall 2018;  this fall came in way too fast for my liking, along with many days of below normal temperatures; brrrr.   But we have no control over Mother nature, and she does play an important role in many other wonders throughout the year.  
  
karl forester grass, winnipeg garden centers, perennials on saleNow is a great time to consider plants that bloom late or have vibrant autumn foliage. Plants thrive in fall planting because of the cooler air, they lose less water.  Fall is when most bulbs need to be planted;  tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies, crocuses, alliums ... they should all go in the ground now to stimulate root growth that'll carry them through the season.
  
If you are continuing to create an appealing container garden for the season;  try mixing tall grasses with ornamental peppers and kale, or by adding perennials such as;  asters, chrysanthemums, sedum etc  and don’t forget to add pumpkins or gourds in or around your display.  Yes, you can still plant nursery stock (trees, shrubs & perennials) in fall! As long as the ground is workable and using proper planting techniques, your plants will have a strong start.  Don’t forget to water your containers and beds after you plant—this helps the roots get off to a strong start. Mulch is beneficial to trees, shrubs, and perennials.
 





fall mum, fall mum sale, winnipeg garden centersNOTE: Nothing quite says autumn gardening like potted mums  The potted mums in garden centres during late summer to autumn should be treated as annuals. If you receive a plant as a gift you can keep it outside, however, they won’t survive winter. Like other annuals, mums benefit from deadheading to encourage new blooms.  If you plan on keeping them inside, place in a sunny window away from drafts.
OR,….
 
You could want to start preparing your garden pots with either a Halloween theme (cobwebs & big Spiders and Witches with colourful brooms etc) or slowly transition that same pot into a Christmas theme, by applying your birch or dogwood sticks into your containers now, perhaps even making holes with pipes where you  may want a small tree topper or solar lights to be inserted.
 
 
Usually the winter garlands and branches etc., begin trickling into our green house by early November, and then the lovely smell of Christmas trees will follow later. 
 
Join us for some great nights out and learn to make and decorate wreaths and containers; see our class schedule.

Fall is in the air!

 FALL officially is here later this month;  you can feel it in the air, cooler evenings and shorter daylight times.
 
Fall and Halloween displays are fast approaching, ….  So perhaps it is time to change up those dried out maybe not so pretty planters; try adding some fall flowering perennials; like sedums, ornamental grasses or brightly coloured fall shrubs.. and don’t forget about the Mums – beautiful and full of colour.
 
 
Fall planting season still plenty to be done in the garden and it is a pleasure to plant in—the weather is cool and comfortable, and you can really enjoy the landscape before winter winds usher you indoors.
