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.

CHRIS SAYS…….

As you probably know this year marks the 50th Anniversary milestone of the BBC's Gardeners’ World programme. For us gardeners it remains the go-to gardening programme for expert advice, seasonal tips, opportunities to view gardens from around the UK and of course enjoy the antics of current presenter Monty Don and his two dogs, Nigel and Nell. I’ve grown up with the presenters including the wonderful Geoff Hamilton, genial Percy Thrower and the stalwart Alan Titchmarsh. GW’s five decades have defined the way we garden and also have reflected on how the garden centre business has developed. Gardeners’ World has been integral throughout, reporting and commenting on the day to day development of the horticultural world with an ever-changing band of enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenters that brought their own skills to the programme.

The Garden Trade’s connection to GW has not been good as garden centres are unable to get advanced notice of what plants are going to be recommended, so often they do not have them in stock for viewers who have been inspired to plant. In a world of super speed communication this nagging missing link still remains. So, my hope that this will change soon and we’ll be kept up to date with what Monty, Joe, Rachel and Adam enthuse so passionately so you, the gardening public, can benefit and purchase the plants lovingly ‘promoted’ on the BBC. Happy anniversary to GW and here is to the next 50 years!

Enjoy your midsummer garden - whatever the weather!
