We're celebrating 95 years in Wichita...
Wichita's 4th generation garden center started as a small fruit and vegetable stand in the 1920s. Orie Johnson's was on the outskirts of town at the corner of Douglas and West Streets in Wichita, Kansas. 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 nearly a century. Wichita's "favorite hometown garden center" is still serving gardeners all over Kansas. 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 95 years have in store for us!
Apply ferti•lome For All Seasons now through mid April. This is the first step in Johnson’s ferti•lome Lawn Care Program for cool season grasses, like fescue.
On warm season lawns, like bermuda, use Hi-Yield Turf & Ornamental; it does not contain fertilizer which makes it a better choice for bermuda.
In March, plant seeds of beets, lettuce, peas, radishes, spinach & turnips. Put out cabbage, broccoli & cauliflower plants.
Other vegetables to plant now include asparagus, garlic, rhubarb, potatoes & onion plants or sets. Asparagus and rhubarb are planted as perennial roots.
Healthy plants are the best insurance against Kansas weather, disease & insect attacks. The first step is adequate food & water. ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food is easy; just broadcast the granules around the entire area under the tree or shrub & water it in. For extra protection on stressed or insect susceptible trees use ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Systemic Insect Drench.
