It's time to plant!

Tomatoes, Peppers & Veggies!

Use ferti•lome Blooming & Rooting Soluble Plant Food when you plant your veggie garden. You should also feed vegetables monthly with granular ferti•lome Gardener’s Special, ferti-lome Tomato and Vegetable Food, or Natural Guard Organic Tomato and Vegetable Food to get the most production from your plants.

Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawn Care

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.


Get Growing

Time to plant annuals (vinca, impatiens), shrubs (butterfly bush, crapemyrtle) and vegetables (cucumbers, eggplant) that like it hot. You can continue planting most other shrubs, trees and perennials, too.



No garden is complete without at least one tomato plant, and there are always new var ieties and old standbys to choose from. For best results, rotate where you plant tomatoes each year.


Growing almost anything—flowers, vegetables, herbs —in pots is becoming more and more popular. You can plant earlier than in the ground as well as control the soil environment.

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!
