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.

Chickens can’t fly, for example like a pigeon, but they can get to a reasonable height and distance of about 4-5ft in height and a distance of about 5ft. This means that a fence to keep your chickens in would have to be around 6ft high to keep them in. To also prevent them from getting out you can clip one of the wings this is done by using a sharp pair of house hold scissors and trimming the long finger like flight feathers, but care does need to be taken NOT to cut top far up the feather shaft as you can catch the vain and cause bleeding. It is always best to get a knowledgeable and experienced poultry keeper to help you and show you how far to cut.
