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…….

In our ever changing world of fast moving technology and day-to-day life, it’s particularly good to see and read that gardening continues to get the thumbs up as a way of helping us to relieve everyday stress and help stimulate the senses.

In a recent report it was also highlighted that the garden can and often does double up as one of the best outdoor gyms! Routine gardening tasks such as regular pruning and lopping can shed around 238 calories every 60 minutes! Digging also fairs well - 272 calories per hour, although I know which activity I would prefer!

Getting out and about in the garden and on the allotment also appears to be good for our mental well-being according to another recent study. The study, by Westminster and Essex Universities, questioned 269 people - around half of whom did some gardening. The results revealed that those who spent as little as 30 minutes a week on their allotments saw significant gains in mental well-being, according to the Journal of Public Health. The research also showed the allotment gardeners had fewer weight problems. Those who had worked on their allotments at least once a week had lower levels of fatigue, depression, tension and anger and had higher self-esteem and better general health than those who had done no gardening at all! So, on that cheery note Christmas lunch won’t feel such a guilty pleasure this year! Another mince pie, anyone?

Wishing all our customers a very Happy Christmas!
