Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Cool-Season Lawns

Apply ferti•lome Winterizer to cool-season grasses (fescue, rye or bluegrass) in November. Aside from September, November is the next best time to fertilize cool-season lawns.

Spring Flowering Bulbs

November is the perfect month to plant all spring flowering bulbs. We recommend planting with Back To Nature Cotton Burr Compost, Hi-Yield Bone Meal and Hi-Yield Dutch Bulb Food.



Amaryllis bulbs are very individual and bloom in their own time. Usually it takes 6-10 weeks, but some may bloom in a month and some may flower for Valentine’s Day, so be patient.

Winter Mulch

All plants will benefit from being mulched in the winter. Cedar mulch, cotton burr compost, cottonseed hulls, bark, or even straw can be used to keep the soil temperature even, reducing the freeze and thaw fluctuations that are so damaging to plant roots.

Squirrel, Coulter!!

There is something fun about wildlife in the backyard. Living not too far from the Arkansas River in the Indian Hills/Riverside Area, it’s not uncommon for me to see red fox, whitetail deer, and even hear reports of coyotes in the neighborhood.
We make a living with what we get, and a life with what we give.

As the weather cools and soup hits the spot, our plant focus has changed at the stores from trees and shrubs to Florida foliage.

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!
