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 year gallops on and in a ever so fast moving world it’s reassuring that gardening takes a much deserved breather as the start of the new growing season, autumn, begins. Well, I say that slightly tongue in cheek, of course, as its been hectic here as we finalise our new Mail-Order Catalogue, our Garden Centre Plant Buyer, Gill, finalises the plant promotions and reserves for 2016 and the big Christmas 2015 build gets under way! Phew, it really never stops!

Certainly the Autumn is all about planning for the spring and further ahead, deciding on changes we might want to make through the winter months and the promise of a new season and all that it brings. As we prepare for our Apple & Honey Show Weekend (26th & 27th Sept), it’s also about enjoying the fruits of our labours and about looking for new  plants to grow and enjoy. One plant that certainly caught my eye and is now available is a new compact patio raspberry called ‘Ruby Beauty’ (pictured above). As our gardens decrease in size, so more productive and compact versions of popular favourites are being developed by Buckingham Garden Centre's Chris Daygrowers. ‘Ruby Beauty’ is a sweet tasting, summer cropping variety growing just 1m (3ft) high, so is perfect for pots of around 45cm (18in) across. Its compact habit means it can be netted easily and you can eat the fruits if you wish from your sun lounger - perfect then in every way!

Happy and productive gardening folks!
