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.

The plain white flour, with a multi-purpose use, is milled from a blend of the highest quality soft wheats to a fine consistency and rich in flavour. This flour can be used for making pastry, cakes, shortbreads, sauces and many more delicious sweet and savoury products.

Cotswold Plain Flour
Matthews flours

FWP Matthews Ltd is one of the few remaining independent , family owned flour mills in the UK.

The business traces its history back to the 1860s when farmer Marmaduke Matthews began trading in corn and seeds from his barn in the Cotswold village of Fifield in Oxfordshire.  His son, Frederick Matthews, and grandson, Frederick William Powell Matthews moved the business a few miles to the picturesque village of Shipton-under-Wychwood and decided to build a flour mill next to the railway station to produce the biscuit flour for despatch by train.

The mill was completed in 1912 and today produces a wide range of high quality flours for customers all over the UK and beyond.  The business is owned and managed by Paul and Graham Matthews, great, great grandsons of the founder.  They produce a wide range of flours and we have selected those which we think will be most popular with our customers.
