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.

Celebrating our gardens is something we Brits take great pride in. Whether you visit local gardens open under the National Garden Scheme or opt to explore larger, grander gardens we can learn so much from them, especially when it comes to making them wildlife friendly. As our Apple & Honey Show approaches, it’s good to know garden plants are making a significant contribution to the plight of our honeybees. So, do please come along on Sunday 25th September and immerse yourself into all things bee-keeping. There will be plenty to see and do, including talks as well as a fully staged Honey Show bringing the whole of Buckinghamshire’s passionate bee-keepers together. It will be buzzing that’s for sure!

Oh, by the way our regular Tasks of the Month feature has now moved to its new home on our website. We thought it would free up some space in the main printed newsletter for more features and stories which have a much wider appeal. You can check out the tasks at HERE.

Finally, as the nights draw in there’s some good news for Gardeners’ World fans as through September the BBC 2 programme runs for a full 60 minute rather than its usual potted 30 minutes. Monty Don has already mentioned ‘changes afoot’ so we look forward to at least extra GW at a time of year we can really appreciate it, and not forgetting scene stealers Monty’s two dogs Nigel and of course Nell!

Enjoy your summer garden - whatever the weather!
