We can only sell bare-rooted plants when they are dormant. Orders for bare-rooted plants will be sent when the plants are dormant again (depending on the weather this is normally in November). We still have a wide range of pot grown and cell grown plants available for despatch or collection.

We don't charge your credit card for goods until they are about to be despatched. Orders received before October will be charged at this season's prices. We process orders on a first come, first served basis so to get your plants as early as possible please place your order now.

The Garden Centre is currently open 9:00am to 5:30pm Monday - Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday, for more information see www.buckinghamgardencentre.co.uk.

Where possible please contact us by email as we have reduced number of staff available to answer phone calls. The mail order office is open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

Bare-rooted plants (marked br or tr) can only be sent when they are dormant (November March).

All prices include VAT where applicable.
