"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. The cafe is adorable and full of greenery, with great coffee and light food at reasonable prices. 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."

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."

“I’m very happy with the whole experience of using the Boma Garden Centre for revamping our garden. They were very good at tuning in to what I wanted and came up with a design and materials that were exactly right. They were also very flexible in being able to add on additional bits of work as the project progressed. The workers on site were all polite and courteous and ensured that the disruption was kept to a minimum for my neighbours. My partner and I are very happy with the results and looking forward to making the most of the new garden in the summer!”
— Cathy Priddey, January 2013
“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, January 2012
"Boma is an ideal ‘one-stop-shop’ for anyone looking to design, create, enhance or simply maintain their garden."
“After the Boma planted up the boxes and beds at Kentish Town Station the manager said the following ‘Boris Johnson came through Kentish Town station today with his entourage and was stunned by the presence of the flowers and plants. He thinks it is sensational and is recommending me for an award.”
— April 2012
“Yours is the nicest and best stocked garden centre I have visited, the staff were lovely and I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices were. It was such a pleasure to see that your staff obviously enjoy their work and there was a lot of care an attention gone into everything. I’m already planning my next visit and will be recommending The Boma to anyone who’ll listen!”
— Mable Cable, The Ginger Pig, August 2013
“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.”
