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…….

If this summer you have grown your first Potato, Carrot, Raspberry, Tomato or Plum then welcome to the Grow Your Own club. It feels good doesn’t it? Sowing, planting, raising, feeding, staking, maybe pest and disease deterring, battles with the elements and this year we’ve had them all, there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of serving up a portion of home-produce tended by your own fair hands. Growing edibles is perhaps one of the sharpest learning curves we can take on board, yet despite the highs and lows of the process and whatever the outcome, it is a great feeling. These ‘skills’ and believe me I think we can use the word with authority may be passed on to other members of the family our children and grandchildren. This summer we set some local schools two tasks - to grow the largest sunflower flower head and the heaviest and most decorated pumpkin. These two challenges will hopefully engage children and teachers in the common pursuit of nurturing the growth of plants as well as a greater understanding of what plants need to succeed. We look forward to seeing their results at our Apple and Honey Show Weekend on the 23rd and 24th September.  

If you want to learn more about the theory of good seasonal garden practise then a reminder about our next Autumn Essentials in the Garden Workshop, with Clare Price. Hands-on topics to be covered include seasonal pruning advice, propagation from pruning material, seed collection and storage and top tips on planting bare-root trees, fruit and shrubs. See HERE.

Enjoy your late summer garden - whatever the weather!
