Buckingham Plant and Garden Centre,
Buckinghamshire (page 2)
HELP AND GUARANTEES
When we visited the garden centre we saw no hardy plant
guarantee on display. The guarantee for plants bought online was for
only 3 days which was also disapointing.
Help is available from a dedicated information centre in
the outdoor plant centre. Thoroughly commendable.
A small range of house plants is available in the shop area. The plants
were healthy and the prices were average.
Buckingham Aquatics stocks a reasonable range of tropical and marine
fish. Coldwater fish are also sold when they are in season. There is a
full range of accessories including feeds, pumps and tanks.
The aisles in nearly all the areas is more than wide enough for
wheelchair access. The floor surfaces are even throughout. Disabled
toilets are provided.
The cafe is on the small side for the amount of visitors but in warm
times there is additional seating outside. The cafe area is neat and
tidy but uninspiring. Interestingly, there were original pictures for
sale on the walls.
The food is good quality with many items being really "home-cooked".
There are the normal sandwiches, filled potatoes, ploughmans, Panini
etc. on offer for a light lunch. In addition there are several specials
available for a larger lunch.
The coffee and tea were good. The prices were very competitive, with
all of the hot lunch meals at under �6. That's great value for money
given the high standard of food on offer.
The toilets were clean with no queues although a little dated.
The car park was ample for the number of visitors and was dry and

DATE OF LAST VISIT
Buckingham Garden Centre is one of the top garden centres we have
visited for plants. The range on offer is outstanding and all the plants
look healthy. Our only criticism is the level of guarantee on hardy
plants. This was well below the standard of most other large garden
centres. Overall, we thoroughly recommend that you give Buckingham's a visit.
