Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Summer Care

A cool tip to help our green friends make it through until fall is mulching around the roots. Mulch keeps the root zone cooler, conserves moisture and keeps weeds down.

Fall Planting

Extend the vegetable growing season by keeping existing plants healthy. Fertilize with a light organic fertilizer like Nature’s Source. Continue spraying for diseases and insects if you’ve had problems.


Lawn Care

Cool-season grasses are also struggling now. Watch for dry areas and adjust sprinklers to insure good coverage. Another solution is to apply Hydretain to your lawn.

Annual Flowers

Annual flowers and vegetables can be fed lightly in the heat with a slow release fertilizer like ferti•lome Garden Cote or Color Star.

Zucchini: Easy to grow, hard to give away.

Do you know why it’s advisable to keep your car doors locked while out shopping this time of the year? Because gardeners will drop off a sack of zucchini squash in your car if left unlocked!! Their friends and family are tired of them trying to give it away!

To plant a seed is to believe in tomorrow.

To plant a seed is to believe in tomorrow.

A couple of weeks ago, we visited about converting your existing turf to the "latest and greatest" tall fescue types for our region. Not only will you have the latest in disease resistance, you’ll also have a blend of seed that is denser, has a better appearance in both color and texture, and will have less of a tendency to clump.

It's so hot, my thermometer reads

It's so hot, my thermometer reads "Are you kidding me?!"

Moonlight Madness at Johnson’s has always been a blast at the garden centers. As with all of our promotions, they tend to evolve over time. In the early years, hours of the event were 6:00 pm to midnight, and it was HOT!! So hot, in fact, that I saw two trees fighting over a dog! It was so hot, my thermometer went up to "Are you kidding me?!" So hot the moon pies we served on the anniversary of the lunar landing melted before they got out of the box! 


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!
