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…….

Growing beds at Buckingham Garden CentreA customer said to me the other day the only reason they spent time and energy growing vegetables was for “the taste”. If you watch any of the foodie programmes on TV - Nigel Slater, Raymond Blanc, Greg Wallace and John Torode, the overriding mantra to a delicious dish is simply that the food ingredients are tasty and they excite the senses. So, what better way is there to grow tasty fruits and vegetables than hand-picking your own flavoursome varieties from the catalogue? The good news is we are doing more of it and embracing it, as certainly at the Garden Centre sales of all edible seeds and plants continue unabated. Rediscovering and preserving the older and tastier varieties is  being championed by Garden Organics with their excellent Seed Heritage Scheme. This year we are growing a wide range of vegetables for Garden Organics under the Seed Guardian scheme. You’ll see the growing bed (pictured above) in the Garden Centre situated in our tree area - do please come and have a look. These vegetables are being allowed to deliberately set seed, so allowing the developing seeds to be collected then distributed to fellow gardeners to grow and preserve these varieties for the future.Chris Day of Buckingham Garden Centre
