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.

When did you first venture out into the garden and get your hands dirty? When I was knee high to a grasshopper I do remember a ‘mountain’ of turf arriving in our garden and my Dad lugging and moving the turfs in a wheelbarrow in readiness to create a new lawn. Of course this didn’t mean anything to me, apart from the fact I got to use a rake and was allowed to remove ‘big stones’ and level. My next recollection was in my dear grandma’s garden picking border carnations and just remembering the amazing fragrance. Our childhood memories are so important and these days encouraging youngsters with plants, soil and nature usually means prizing them away from screens. At the Garden Centre we continually encourage and engage with local children, from school visits to our annual school challenge so it’s with much delight that we announce the launch of our Junior Gardening Club. We’ll be running a monthly competition to find missing letters behind our secret doors, plus we’ll make sure there are activities aplenty in our newsletters and at our events. We also want to get more local schools involved in gardening and engaged with Nature. So, if you are needing some help with a specific gardening or nature themed project then we would love to hear from you.

Finally, this summer has been a scorcher and we know many of you have been ‘plagued’ by wasps. Local pest controller, Tom Caswell, gives us his wealth of knowledge on these pesky characters on page 7.

Enjoy your late summer garden - whatever the weather!
