Planting for Success

Blooming annual plants are heavy feeders. To keep the blooms coming, we use quality potting mix, add slow-release granular fertilizer, plant with root stimulator, and water weekly with balanced, water-soluble plant food.


Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawn Care

On cool-season lawns, raise the mower cutting height to help beat the summer heat. Mow to 3 to 3.5” for fescue. Established cool-season lawns also need about 1” of water a week taking rainfall into account.

Mosquitoes

In ponds or other standing water use Mosquito Dunks or Mosquito Bits in the water to take care of the larva. For area control spray Bonide Mosquito Beater to kill mosquitoes. Follow up, especially before outdoor activities, with ferti•lome MosquitoGo Insect Granules to keep them away.

 

Flowers

Keep hanging baskets, planters and garden flowers fertilized to maintain vigorous, healthy plants. A slow-release fertilizer, like ferti•lome Garden Cote 6, will feed plants all season—but remember to supplement with a water-soluble high in phosphorus (ferti•lome Blooming & Rooting) to keep plants blooming profusely.

Bagworms

The larva are now active and feeding inside their bags. Spray with Natural Guard Spinosad now and again in two weeks.

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!
