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…….

Gardening is the perfect antidote to get you back into the stride of life after the festive season. Getting out and about, doing a bit of New Year gardening, a country walk or a visit or two to the Garden Centre soon gets us re-connected and re-invigorated with plants and nature. The news that the UK is to get a new Northern Forest stretching across from the Mersey to the Humber was a bit of a surprise, albeit a good one. Experts say we are not planting enough trees in the UK, so this gigantic project to plant 50 million (yes, 50000000) trees is going to have a beneficial effect on the environment including reducing flooding, improved timber supply, increased carbon storage, job creation and the general improvement in health and wellbeing of locals. This news comes hot on the heels that gardeners, as against some farmers, over the past few years have been doing more to help the nation’s honey bees by planting the right plants. Our wide breadth of garden planting is something we need to continue and just maybe, once this Brexit malarkey is sorted, the Government can address the issues facing the countryside and help provide farmers with the necessary encouragement and incentives to help deal with the ailing honey bee and butterfly populations across the UK. It’s not all rosy in the garden, plant pests and diseases are still continuing to grab our attention (see page 8), all we can do is plant diligently, keep abreast of the news and help encourage our British growers to grow great plants - not only for us but for our garden insect microclimate!

Enjoy your winter garden - whatever the weather!
