Things We Like For Fall

Enjoy the harvest season & prep for winter!


Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawn Care

October is the time for a second round of ferti•lome Winterizer on your fescue lawn (about 30 days after your first application). This feeding is also crucial for the survival of grass planted 4-6 weeks ago.

Fall Color

Plant mums, pansies, ornamental cabbage and kale now to give your garden a burst of color this fall. Use ferti•lome Gardener’s Special in the soil when planting. For plants in containers, use ferti•lome 20-20-20 Water Soluble Plant Food.

 

Trees and Shrubs

Every Kansas summer presents its own challenges that stress our trees and shrubs, whether it’s heat and drought or saturated soils. The best thing to do to help plants next spring is to water and to fertilize this fall with ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food.

Spring Flowering Bulbs

October is “prime time” for bulb planting. Daffodils, crocus, tulips and hyacinths can be planted anytime now through December. When planning your spring garden, remember that bulbs make a more effective display when planted in groups rather than singly.

Pumpkin: Fruit or Vegetable?

Pumpkin: Fruit or Vegetable?

We’ve all had the conversation about what defines a fruit and what defines a vegetable. By now, we know that a tomato is a fruit, a beet is a vegetable and a banana is an herb (and a vegetable; it’s complicated).

If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.

To me, planting Dutch spring flowering bulbs is like cooking. First of all, unless the cook really messes up, most meals are pretty good....

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!
