Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Christmas Tree Recycling

After you’ve enjoyed your cut Christmas tree for the holidays, take it to one of the free disposal sites provided by Sedgwick County.

Landscape Plants

If the winter is dry and we have a warm (above freezing) spell, water the landscape, especially newly planted trees, shrubs and grass.


Winter Bird Feeding

Shelter, as provided by shrubs or your old Christmas tree, is a great start for attracting birds. Water and food are the other two requirements.

Houseplant Winter Care

Most houseplants need as much light as you can give them in the winter; even a lamp turned on gives them a boost. Reduce fertilizing to once a month and monitor for insect problems that can build up indoors.

Last weekend, Angie and I headed to St. Louis for a visit with Kristen and the girls. We had not been able to celebrate Christmas with them because of quarantine, schedules and weather.

To think happy thoughts, eat a homegrown tomato.

In the past, I never appreciated how much fresh herbs add to our dining experience. My food gardens have always been mostly fruits and vegetables.

Here's to more green lights in 2021!

I had several thoughts about what direction to go on this week’s enews. Do we talk about our New Year’s Resolutions? On 2020? What will our world look like going forward?

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!
