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 popular children’s TV programme Blue Peter celebrates its Diamond birthday - a massive 60 years this year. We all have favourite memories and presenters - mine being John Noakes, Peter Purves and Valerie Singleton with their pet cat and dogs, including ‘get down’ Shep! I’m sure many of our childhood memories still resonate of projects using throw away items such as empty cardboard boxes, pipe cleaners, plastic bottles and not forgetting sticky back plastic. So, despite the current massive debate of recycling and up cycling, children have been helping by using these kitchen cast-offs for years. We gardeners, too, try to recycle our plant waste on the compost heap (pages 4-5), however the huge issues of one-use plastic and packaging means there is much to do in the future if we are help preserve our fragile planet. At the Garden Centre we observe a strict recycling policy with the re-use of cardboard boxes for carrying purchases from the till, to shredding newspapers and waste paper for packing our mail-order plants. Gardeners often save toilet rolls for germinating beans, peas and sunflower seeds in and I’ve seen a few net curtains utilised over allotment plots to keep out the dreaded cabbage white butterfly or low flying pesky carrot fly.

We all can make a difference and remember however small these appear they can translate to a much bigger picture. Have a great Christmas and we hope to see you very soon.

Enjoy your winter garden - whatever the weather!
