About Us

We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. Our informative mail-order catalogue of hedging plants, forest and ornamental trees, shrubs, fruit, ground cover plants and ornamental grasses is available on-line at www.hedging.co.uk.

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.

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 composts, paving, fencing and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments.

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.


At the end of World War Two, John Brown, turned his expertise and passion for alpines into an Alpine Nursery in London growing and selling his own plants. His son, Richard, then moved the business to Buckingham in the early 1970's and from these humble roots grew the business we are so proud of today.
