Gardening Tips

Get earth on your hands.

Summer Care

A cool tip to help our green friends make it through until fall is mulching around the roots. Mulch keeps the root zone cooler, conserves moisture and keeps weeds down. Cedar mulch is the best to use around trees and shrubs; because of its fibrous nature it stays in place well.

Fall Planting

Extend the vegetable growing season by keeping existing plants healthy. Fertilize with a light organic fertilizer like Nature’s Source. Continue spraying for diseases and insects if you’ve had problems. Many vegetables will produce into the fall months if properly fertilized and sprayed.

Lawn Care

Watch for dry areas and adjust sprinklers to insure good coverage. Another solution is to apply Hydretain to your lawn. This is a root zone moisture manager that is effective in reducing water use and combating drought stress for 3 months in your cool season lawn.


Euonymus Scale, Webworms & Rabbits/Squirrels are three pests that drive us bonkers and do damage to our landscapes. Horticultural Oil, Natural Guard Spinosad and Bonide Repels-All are some of our favorite treatment options for these pests.

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!
