Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawn Care

For cool season lawns like fescue, apply ferti•lome For All Seasons II Lawn Food Plus Crabgrass & Weed Preventer containing prodiamine now through mid April.

Tree & Shrub Care

The first step is adequate food and water. ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food is an easy, effective way to fertilize. For extra protection on stressed or insect susceptible trees use ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Systemic Insect Drench.


Lawn Overseeding

March is a good time to seed or overseed cool-season grasses. Expect the seed to germinate more slowly than in the fall because of cooler soil temperatures.

Time to Get "Growing"

Vegetable gardening moves into full swing in March. Plant seeds of beets, lettuce, peas, radishes, spinach and turnips. It’s also time to put out cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower plants.

Something I learned last year while on the mid-day news at KAKE TV, is that March 1st is the “meteorological” first day of spring.

Horticulturists will be talking about the winter of 2021 for many years, just as they do about the snow of February 1971, and the summer of 1980.

A Green Thumb 90 years in the making...

It's still all good in the hood.

Wichita's 4th generation garden center started as a small fruit & vegetable stand in the 1920s on the outskirts of town at the corner of Douglas and West Street in Wichita, KS.  As the business grew, Harold Johnson, with his father Orie, bought 5 acres of land on West 13th Street, and opened Johnson's Garden Center. This location is still operating today!

Fast forward a half century. Wichita's "favorite hometown garden center" is still serving gardeners all over Kansas for over 90 years. We are a 4th generation family owned business, and are committed to providing quality products and excellent service to our customers.

We can't wait to see what the next 90 years have in store for us!
