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.

Buckingham Garden Centre's Chris DayHow is YOUR gardening faring after this autumn? The rain and high winds promptly put paid to our usual autumnal burst of foliage colour, which was disappointing. However, it’s not all doom and gloom as the wonderful bark colour from the Birch, Dogwoods and Willows have more than compensated. As we start to decorate our homes and gardens in the run up to Christmas, suddenly the sparkle returns. However we need to inject some late colour in the way of plants to keep the succession going. Due to the atrocious weather many of us have delayed the planting of popular wnter flowering Violas, Pansies, Polyanthus, ornamental cabbages, pots of Helleborus niger, the Christmas Rose and the delicate Miracle Cyclamen - so don’t delay any longer as these plants never norrmally disappoint.

As we are gearing up for the festive season there will be seasonal Poinsettias, Orchids, Azaleas, Christmas cacti and potted Hyacinths to enjoy. Speaking of tradition our customary ‘Thank You‘ gesture of free mince pies and mulled wine (or fruit squash) is extended to all our customers over the December weekends running up to the big day.

As I write this the cut Christmas trees have arrived, the mercury is dropping, Brexit has yet to be completed, but at least we can all take comfort that Christmas, in all its guises, is nearly upon us.

On that note, may we wish all our customers a  peaceful and fruitful Christmas - whatever the weather.
