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.


We also offer everything required for caring for your chickens from feed and feeders to a wide selection of vitamin and mineral supplements, and lotions and potions for treating minor ailments and injuries. We also have a comprehensive range of red mite treatments for the hen house and for treating the chickens themselves. There is also a good range of poultry housing selected to give value for money and easy care, with houses starting with the most basic ark style wooden house The Rita Ark suited for two hens, up to our deluxe, Bourton wooden ark suited for up to six hens. We are also stockists for ‘Omlet’ poultry housing.

The team looks forward to your visit and are ready and waiting to answer all your poultry questions!

At the Poultry Centre we always have in stock a good selection of hybrid laying hens. The varieties of hens may vary but we normally stock Columbian Black Tails, Cooper Star, Sussex Star and Bluebells. These have all been selected for their fantastic laying performance and superb temperament which makes them great as family pets. Other types of hybrid hens may be in stock at other times so please do phone or call in and take a look to find out which hens we have in stock.
