Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Fescue Lawns

There is still time to plant grass seed through October. Seed planted now will be slower coming up and, depending on weather, may not totally mature this fall, but fall-planted seed will always be stronger going into summer than seed planted in the spring. Grass planted in October will need Winterizer in November.

Fall Color

Plant mums, pansies, ornamental cabbage and kale now to give your garden a burst of color this fall. Use ferti•lome Gardener’s Special in the soil when planting. For plants in containers, use ferti•lome 20-20-20 Water Soluble Plant Food.


Tulips & Other Bulbs

October is “prime time” for bulb planting. Daffodils, crocus, tulips and hyacinths can be planted anytime now through December. When planning your spring garden, remember that bulbs make a more effective display when planted in groups rather than singly.

Trees & Shrubs

Every Kansas summer presents its own challenges that stress our trees and shrubs, whether it’s heat and drought or saturated soils. The best thing to do to help plants next spring is to water and to fertilize this fall with ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food.

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!
