Planting Materials

Don't skimp!

Our favorite fast-acting plant food that enhances the color, size, longevity, and number of Tropical Hibiscus blooms is ferti-lome Hibiscus & Tropical Plant Food. The ferti-lome Ultimate Potting Mix is a soil that works very well when a container with adequate drainage is used. This is a sterile media that enables you to use the fertilizer of your choice for the plants you are growing. Perfect for pansies, tomatoes, roses, orchids, ornamentals, container plants, berries, and flowering shrubs, ferti-lome Blooming & Rooting encourages better blooming, greener foliage, and strong root development. With added fertilizer, Root Simulator will also promote healthier root development for your new plantings.

Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Lawn Care

Apply ferti•lome Pro-Green Lawn Tonic now through mid May. This is the second step in Johnson’s ferti•lome Lawn Care Program for cool season grasses.


April is an excellent time to plant trees, shrubs, vines and perennials. Use ferti•lome Start-N-Grow slow-release plant food in the planting hole to maintain your landscape plants throughout the season.

Fertilizing & Pruning

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.

Pests & Diseases

Use ferti•lome Broad Spectrum Landscape & Garden Fungicide, ferti•lome Liquid Systemic Fungicide or liquid F-Stop Lawn & Garden Fungicide (for fruiting apple trees) to control Cedar Apple Rust.

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!
