Garden Centre Newsletter - May/June 2016

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.

It seems apt in a year we celebrate the 400th birthday of William Shakespeare, the 300th birthday of William ‘Capability’ Brown and our glorious Queen at 90 years old, that flowers in forms of sonnets, prose, posies and visual interpretation figure so highly.  No doubt later in the summer we’ll be subjected to the intense colour and vibrancy of Rio and the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, again flowers will feature. Flowers and their significance really should never be underestimated. They are, after all the workhorse of the garden border, pots and hanging baskets. They are the life blood to our pollinating honey bees and provide so much pleasure from so little effort. So, whatever flowers you intend to plant over the summer months, think Daisies and help the Medical Detection Dogs charity (click HERE).

In this issue we launch a couple of treats for our Garden Centre Club Members. A special 10% off voucher for any Flopro irrigation and watering product. This offer runs until the 30th June so if you are planning to change your hose, sprinkler, cart or water gun, do take advantage of this great offer. Please bring the voucher from the back cover to gain your discount.

We are also promoting a limited number of garden plants, one each month and again exclusive to Garden Centre Club Members. These plants will be available at half-price, in May you can purchase a Lavender ‘Munstead’ for just £4.99 and in June a Mophead Hydrangea, again for £4.99.  These 3-litre pot grown plants are normally £9.99 each. Plant numbers are limited. Simply show your valid Garden Card at time of purchase to enjoy the savings on the plants and until the end of June for the Flopro offer.

Enjoy your late spring garden - whatever the weather!
