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.

Earlier in the year the Royal Horticultural Society announced that they were going to set up a new environmental team to bolster its climate change related research. The team, who are based at RHS Wisley, will research and advise on sustainable resource management, soil health and ecosystem services, including how the UK’s 27 million gardeners can contend with weather extremes, air and noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Findings and advice will be shared with industry and the public. This is excellent news. As we see the massive swings in our weather patterns, we gardeners do need to know how best we can garden for both business and pleasure taking notice of the findings from this new resource. Hopefully we’ll all benefit from the research enabling us to garden more effectively and grow the best plants for our conditions. The variable weather of this spring and summer clearly demonstrates how the way we need to garden in the future is likely to change. The move to artificial grass rather than lawns is a classic example. Turf has its very own microcosm both underground in the soil and above where it provides a wide and varied food source to our insect life as well as allowing excessive rainfall to be processed in a natural manner. Our fragile planet needs our help and understanding more than ever - whether you are a gardener or not.

Enjoy your late summer garden - whatever the weather.     Chris
