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.

As a customer said to me the other day, you really couldn’t have written the script for this winter weather. Mild wet weather isn’t winter-like that’s for sure and judging already by the questions raised in the Plant Office, nature will need to do a lot of balancing before spring finally arrives.  Enjoying the garden shouldn’t be the result of all our labours, it should be the starting point. New plant varieties are making the whole process so much more entertaining. Take fruit - years ago if you planted a fruit tree - say an apple, a cherry or a plum it would grow huge. Today we have rootstocks which not only help control the height of plants but also help cropping. You can come along and learn more about fruit tree grafting at our National Springtime Scion Swap on Sunday 28th February with the Mid Shires Orchard  Group and Moulton College’s top fruit grafting expert, Fritz De Zutter. For a small fee, you can have varieties of apples grafted for you so if you have a favourite tree in the garden and want to grow it in a different way, say espalier, step-over, or bush, then bring some scion wood along. If you are not sure what scion wood is please give a member of the plant team a ring on 01280 827912. The whole process is fascinating and you really do see something for your work - delicious fruit on compact trees. We’ve also extended the range of patio fruit we sell this season  - look out for the display of varieties on your next visit.
