Buckingham Garden Centre

We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.

Four legged friends - Medi dog Kiwi

Tuesday 1st March 2016

KIWI


Kiwi has now been with us and training for eight months.  She loves her routine of going into the Medical Detection Dogs Centre every weekday morning and meeting up with the other dogs and the trainers.  She is doing very well on her training and really enjoys her cancer detection work.  When there is enough daylight she gets a walk on her way home but she has plenty of mental stimulation and walks during her time at the Centre to tire her out, but as she loves a walk and a chance to run and retrieve a ball and I enjoy relaxing with her after a day’s work when we can take advantage of the daylight we do.


Although she is still a very inquisitive and quite bouncy dog she does know how to behave so she has represented the charity at such events as the Swanbourne School Christmas Fair, and also she is at the Garden Centre on Sundays and on occasions when she is not needed for ‘work’ at the Medi-Centre.


She has now become very much part of our family and despite her lively nature she is very gentle with our grandchildren, even the two year old.  She has yet to knock any of them over – even the six and seven year olds when they are racing round the garden playing with her.


It really is a pleasure to act as a guardian to one of these remarkable dogs and worth the time one has to give to them.
