Mosquito Controls

Prevent. Repel. Eliminate.

It's always best to think ahead and prevent mosquitoes before they hatch, with products that target mosquito larvae in standing water. If you already have a small mosquito problem, scented products work to repel them. If you have a major mosquito infestation, insecticides will eliminate the problem.


Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawns

Warm-season lawns (bermuda, buffalo and zoysia) can be dethatched and/or mowed short now. This is also the start of seeding time for bermuda and buffalo. Established warm-season grasses take less water than cool-season grasses, like fescue and bluegrass, however newly seeded buffalo and bermuda will need to stay moist when starting out.

Planting & Fertilizing

We can now safely plant all those annuals (vinca, impatiens), shrubs (butterfly bush, crapemyrtle) and vegetables (cucumbers, eggplant, sweet potatoes) that like it hot. You can continue planting most other shrubs, trees and perennials, too.

Tree Care

Use ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food on all types of trees and shrubs now to help them get off to a good start. Apply the proper amount, based on the size of your plants, under and past the drip line, then just water it in. This feeding will not only aid in recovery from past damage but will build up plants to withstand adverse conditions this year.

Who else is enjoying the fruits of labor from the garden? Maybe not too many fruits at this point, but how about vegetables? With the recent moisture, we've been enjoying produce from the garden recently; mainly radishes, green onions, and asparagus at this point. I know those who planted peas, carrots, lettuce, spinach and cole crops are enjoying home grown, fresh produce that they grew themselves. It’s pretty satisfying, isn’t it?

When life gives you rainy days, wear cute boots and jump in the puddles!

There is something magical about rainfall. Plants thrive with moisture from the heavens. Rain is part of the water cycle as it clears the air, replenishes aquifers, allows plants to grow, eventually fills streams, rivers, lakes and ponds, and adds humidity to the air. This time of the year, mowing the lawn a couple times a week isn’t unheard of. Our spring planted bedding plants are getting established, and the early spring vegetables from the garden - radish, asparagus, onions, bro...

There's a place for everyone in the garden.

There's a place for everyone in the garden.

When I plant flowers in my landscape, I tend to go with some sort of a color scheme. Always the brighter the better. I’ve done yellow and red combinations in the past, as well as orange. One thing I also like to do is plant many kinds of plants. Annuals are great. For the most part, they are plants that bloom soon after planting until our killing frost around the first part of November. Perennials have a place in my garden as well. My hostas have been great performers in the shade part of t...

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!
