Bud Garden Centre. How Cute?

Bud is a gorgeous new business which has recently opened, just off Kingsway. Run by Brenda and Severine, it’s a bijou little garden centre. Don’t let the word “little” mislead you though. Small in space, it’s big on beauty and ethical practices. Plants and shrubs are locally sourced wherever possible – some only make the short hop over from Levenshulme.

The choice of plants, fruit trees, climbers, vegetable plants and herbs is astonishing – and through talking to Brenda it’s apparent that this enterprise is a total labour of love. Even though it’s only been open eight weeks, it’s also  clear that it is already a community hub. When we were there, a steady stream of visitors – young and old, families – came to the garden centre. You can find out a little more about Bud on their new profile on Didsbury Life, which will be added to over time. Meanwhile, these images should give you an idea of The Bud set-up…
