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 [email protected]  and I will send it to you! Happy gardening!~ Tammy

What a great day!

Well I survived giving my first seminar! In fact I had a great time! Thanks to everyone who came out to the garden center and helped make our seminars a success! I will be working on setting up more seminars soon! Any suggestions on what you would like to see would be great! I showed some of the new annual and perennial introductions! In fact everyone got to actually touch, feel, and smell the plants as I passed them around! The annuals are on my garden tip page if you want to have a peek at them! Bill Dowie who is Ecological Landscaping Consultant at Ecoplicity Sustanable Urban Design gave 2 seminars on how to really get to know your yard, and be a successful gardener! I have attached a PDF of Bill's first seminar. Part two can be found on my previous blog! Bill will be helping us out at the garden center in May and June working as a in house designer. Details to follow! I will tell you two things though - it's free, and he has some great ideas!
Well that is all I have time to talk about today! I will be posting my gargoyles, dragon, and fairies blog next. It's about some new giftware I have received and my parents unfortunate reaction to it! Tammy Jensen
