Fall is Here in the Garden

Here's what we're doing in the lawn & landscape now

Our Fall Porch Decorating Package brings the colors of fall to your doorstep! We're also caring for our lawns. K-State research recommends fertilizing in the fall. It's the perfect time to seed or overseed your lawn. Start with great grass seed that's developed for our area, like Gard'n-Wise Premium Fescue Blend.


Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Cool-Season Lawns

Fall is the best time to feed cool-season lawns (fescue, bluegrass, rye) with ferti•lome Winterizer. This September fertilizing will help grass thicken up and grow after summer’s stress.

Spring Flowering Bulbs

As gardeners, we tend to deal with pests that attack our beloved plants. Most of the time we think of pests as insects that feed on our plants. However, pests can be more than that. A pest is any animal or plant that has a harmful effect on humans, their food or their living conditions.

September: the Christmas Eve of Fall.

September: the Christmas Eve of Fall.

Hopefully we’ll be receiving some much needed moisture soon. I’ve seen and had questions about leaves already falling on mature trees. My sweetgum in the backyard is starting to drop a few leaves, not like it will in a couple of months, but more like it’s tired and shedding a few leaves to conserve what moisture it has available. That’s what makes fall so good for our plants.

There is a season (turn, turn, turn).

There is a season (turn, turn, turn).

Springtime is a time for planting. We all have cabin fever by winter's end and look forward to spending time outside with the earth. In summer, we thankfully reap the benefits of our fruits, vegetables and flowering plants....

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!
