A Brief History of Johnsons

Johnsons of Boston was established as a garden centre in 1971 by a well-known and local family of seed producers – the Johnsons. Prior to that it was been a specialist rose growing nursery.

In 1998, the Johnson family decided to sell up, and – the by now well know and well loved – garden centre was bought by our current MD, David Isaac and his family. David comes from another renowned and long established local family of entrepreneurs and retailers and has grown the business into what it is today. With our fabulous Fine Food Hall, our ever popular Restaurant and Coffee Shop, franchises including Studio 10 Hair Salon, Boston’s premier Aquatic and Pet store, Tufts & Tangles Dog Groomers,  Spilsby Jewellers, and Seacroft Mobility, Johnsons is so much more than just a Garden Centre!

What does Johnsons stand for?

“We are a family run business dedicated to provide the best products and produce for our customers across the whole store. We work hard to support local businesses, whether that is stocking their great products or employing local businesses and people.”
David Isaac – MD

Johnsons stands for good quality and great customer service, at a fantastic price. Customers come back day after day, year after year. They trust us, they feel welcomed and they know we care and want them to leave the store happy.

In the Garden Centre we value expertise. We know and understand plants and are always ready to give advice.

In the Restaurant we serve home style food, cooked fresh. We bake many of our cakes in house and take pride in our specials.

In the Fine Food Hall, we offer fantastic choice, quality and value, from everyday groceries to fantastic artisan products.

We stock a huge range of fantastic value everyday products and work hard on special offer prices. We also boast probably the best deli in town and expert butcher, local goods including Batemans Beers and both Pocklingtons and Wilcox Bakeries, fantasic frozen foods by Hambletons and fresh produce and flowers.

We care about our community and our environment.

We use local businesses, stock local products, and support local charities.

We have been a waste free business since 2004. We recycle everything from cooking oil to small paper and hard plastics, and continue to look for ways to improve on our already glowing record.

Nothing goes to landfill. Anything that we cannot recycle, we incinerate on site in our environmentally friendly Eco-incinerator. Ash from our incinerator is used to improve our land. Cooking oil is used to make bio-diesel fuel. Timber from pallets etc. is incinerated to heat local greenhouses. We no longer offer free plastic bags but instead encourage customers to use or purchase reusable bags.
