"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."

“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."

"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.”

“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.”
