GARDEN CENTRE

“The customer service at Boma Garden Centre is absolutely amazing, they went to great lengths to meet my order for which I was so grateful. The garden pots arrived and I am very happy with them. My plants look fantastic in them and I really couldn't thank them enough, especially Kim. Thanks to Brad and Ben too for their assistance the day I collected. Truly impressed. Will be seeing you again soon :)”

"I was nothing short of overjoyed to discover this gem of a place 5 minutes from our house after we moved in. It’s a really well thought out space with plenty to discover and new stock and displays every time we visit. It’s easy to forget you’re in London there and somewhere I love coming to unwind. The staff really understand plants and the care involved and are always happy to offer their expertise, I’m more than happy to spend my money here and support this great local business."

"I love this place! It's a hidden gem in London. Affordable prices, cute cat and great staff. I could spend hours in here. I love all the sculptures too. It's like visiting a garden centre out of London. They have a good parking situation too with their own car park and plenty of on street parking. Also they have trolleys to take too. It has everything you will need. including specialist plants. 10/10."

“Monica and Jan were a pleasure to meet and they did an excellent job on my patio garden.  I am very pleased with their work.  They worked extremely hard and were much more caring to preserve my plants than I could have expected. Thank you all for an excellent service. ”
— Shona Moller, July 2019
 
“We really love the garden – the bamboo, new planters and trellis have completely transformed it, it feels much lighter, more spacious and modern. Thank you very much to you and your team for your excellent work. We are so pleased that it is ready for summer and thank you very much for fitting us in at the beginning of this month.”
— Alexander and Jessica, May 2019
 
“Thanks again for all your great work and for sending out such a professional gardener in Gabriel and his helpers. It all looks lovely and makes such a difference to the space. It seems that the news has reached bumblebees and other insects too. Some of the flowers are out giving all more colour and the trees are showing some fresh new leaves.It’s been a true pleasure to set up the garden with your help.”
— Iris Bachmann, May 2019
 
“We just wanted to thank you and Boma for the splendid job which Jan and Sean did to clear our front garden yesterday.  They worked tirelessly all day and we really are delighted with the result - we don’t think we have ever seen it looking so beautifully cleared; they also tidied all the offcuts and debris very thoroughly and the whole place looked impeccable at the end of the day.  They forked in some bonemeal when they had finished and now I can’t wait to get it planted.  We love the unusual Digitalis you sent and the Erythronium and Allium moly bulbs will be perfect - I’m hoping to come to the Garden Centre shortly to find lots more yellow/orange/scarlet plants for the colour scheme! Please will you congratulate and thank Jan and Sean again very much from us both.”

“The two guys who came to do my annual garden clear were absolutely wonderful and my untidy patch now looks like an elegant city garden. They were both so courteous and professional and helpful and I just thought you should know. I am sure you already do.”
— Sandra Smidt, May 2018
 
"We are so happy with our new garden. I wanted to mention that Matteo is a legend! He has put so much effort and thought in making our garden look amazing. Matteo really thought about so many details and had a great number of fabulous ideas as to what would work best in our area. It really looks fab. The rest of the team worked really hard to make sure the garden would be looking good now and, hopefully, even better once the plants are more established. I'm looking forward to seeing the garden grow over the coming years. Thank you again to Matteo and your hard working team.”
— Jacquie and David, November 2017

“In just three days, Boma Garden Centre completely transformed my Central London balcony and terrace into a small oasis, with plants carefully selected for a fifth floor windy environment, providing a wide range of evergreen foliage. My requests in terms of flower colour and fragrance were all fulfilled and very useful suggestions were made by Boma. All the plants were placed in aesthetic looking, modern containers perfectly suiting their location, and the irrigation system efficiently and invisibly fitted. I was absolutely delighted with every aspect of the work and heartily recommend Boma Garden Centre, who created a ‘suspended garden’ for me far more beautiful than I could have ever contemplated.”
— Katherine Purcell, PRE-2017
 
“We used Boma to plant-out our new garden following an extensive refurbishment of our house in Highbury. From start to finish, we were extremely impressed with their advice, service and expertise. Boma is an ideal ‘one-stop-shop’ for anyone looking to design, create, enhance or simply maintain their garden. Boma’s expert staff visited us in our garden to discuss our requirements and within days were on site, erecting trellis and replacing earth and rubble with top-quality top soil. Three days later, and thanks to faultless project management, the works were complete and Boma had transformed the site from a heap of rubble left by our builders to a beautiful, rich and colourful family garden. I cannot emphasise enough the quality of the advice we received, be it on adjacencies of plants (so that the garden remains lush and colourful all-year-round) or the plants themselves, picked from a broad and exciting range that you simply wouldn’t find in your average DIY centre’s Gardening Department. We are absolutely delighted.”
