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.

Chatting to our customers over our recent busy Apple and Honey Show Weekend it is apparent that the weather rather than Brexit is causing more problems and issues in our gardens. It has been a good year rather than a vintage year for fruit generally and the bees haven’t liked the wet and miserable late summer. Our preoccupation with “the weather” always brings a moment of anticipation when the weekend forecast appears on Gardeners’ World with the hope of good weather to provide that welcome great garden escape to potter, visit the odd garden (such as Stowe Landscape Garden or Evenley Wood just down the road) or maybe review the successes and non-performers of the season. If you like me like to “take stock” then planning is often the best therapy. Speaking of which I’m busy planning the talks programme and garden visits for 2018 so if you have any requests for subject matter or locations for our visits then do please let me know by e-mail chris@hedging.co.uk or a call on 01280 827910.

As I write this the Shop Christmas displays are taking shape and there’s no denying the glitter, the brightness and fun - Elf On The Shelf, makes these cold and gloomy days a tad more bearable.

Finally, spiders. Yes, I know I should have warned you earlier but as you’ve probably read in the newspapers there’s around 150 million strong invasion heading into our homes this winter! Hmm, try a few conkers dotted around your window ledges and block up those nooks and crannies - that’s all - sorted!

Enjoy your winter garden - whatever the weather!
