Make your own seasonal decor!

Johnson's fall workshops make the perfect way to renew your seasonal home decor. Spruce up your front door with a fall themed door charm, or your mantle with a one of a kind succulent planter. Workshops are available at both Johnson's locations, but class size is limited, so sign up now! For a private workshop night for your group, give us a call. We'd love to set something up!



Winterize Your Lawn NOW!

Many homeowners are eager to apply early spring fertilizers to their cool-season lawns (fescue, bluegrass, ryegrass). But according to Kansas State University, fall is the most important time to fertilize for the health of your lawn AND for faster green-up in the spring. In the fall, cool-season grasses are entering their peak growth cycle as days shorten and night time temperatures moderate. Cool-season grasses thicken up in the fall by tillering, forming new shoots at the base of existing plants.

Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Fall Lawn Care

It’s time for a second round of ferti•lome Winterizer. This application will green up established grass as well as help make it stronger for winter and next spring. This feeding is also crucial for the survival of grass planted 4-6 weeks ago.

 

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.

 

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.

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, bulbs make a more effective display when planted in groups.

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!
