Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.


These insects form unsightly webs around the ends of branches and feed on the leaves inside. Isolated webs can be pruned off. To spray, first rip open the web then use Natural Guard Spinosad or Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor Broad Use Insecticide.

Euonymus Scale

This insect was especially bad in spring; it looks like small white flecks all over the stems and twigs of euonymus. The second generation hatches in late August so be prepared to spray then and two weeks later with Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray or ferti•lome Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide.



Mulch keeps water from evaporating off the soil surface and reduces the light and air available to weed seeds. In landscape beds the best mulch to use is cedar. The fibers of the shredded cedar mulch knit together to form a barrier against weeds and also to hold the mulch in place so it doesn’t wash away.

Fall Gardening

One way to lengthen the season is by planting a fall garden. Vegetables which can be planted in August for fall harvest include: beans, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, collards, cucumbers, carrots, kale, potatoes, lettuce, mustard, radishes, spinach and turnips.

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!
