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.

There is no doubt when it comes to the weather, gardeners are never happy! As we celebrated Fragrant February in all its glory with some of the most amazing Snowdrops, Daphnes, bulbs and early spring blossom displays in years, many of the experts have suggested it’s been down to the hot summer of last year coupled with a lack of frost and mild temperatures that has lead to much bigger flowers on our plants. So, I suppose it is with some trepidation  we enter the start of the meteorological spring which commences on the 1st March through to the 31st May. Our gardens are certainly romping away and there has never been a better time to make a start - from some simple seed sowings Broad Beans and Sweet Peas to starting off your Begonias and Dahlias.

If you are a fan of the hugely popular BBC’s Antiques Road Show then you may well be interested in our special event on Wednesday 13th March. Woburn-based  Charles Ross, auctioneers, will be attending at the Garden Centre between 10am-4pm providing free valuations on jewellery and antiques to our customers who attend on the day. If you are planning to visit on that date, I’m also giving a talk at 4pm on Twelve Months of Colour. So we’ll see you there!

Enjoy your spring garden - whatever the weather.
