Bud is a bijou, independent garden centre in south Manchester which has enjoyed a growing reputation since it opened in 2011.

The horticultural haven is handily placed just off Kingsway in Burnage and is owned and run by Brenda Smith, who is passionate about environmentally-friendly and sustainable gardening.

To ensure Bud leaves the smallest possible carbon footprint, Brenda only sells UK grown plants, peat-free compost, natural feeds and pest control and locally produced and Fairtrade gifts.

She explains: ‘‘I believe it’s vital to only buy from UK nurseries. It helps preserve UK horticultural skills and reduces delivery miles, which means healthier plants more suited to our environment.All our home-grown vegetable plants and potted bulbs are raised in peat-free compost. Our herbs and ferns and most shrubs and perennials are grown on peat-free UK nurseries.’’

Bud’s peat-free products are also endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society and Which? Gardening.

What Brenda loves most is sharing her passion for sustainable gardening with customers. She says: ‘‘Customers can ask my advice on all aspects of gardening, whether they have a large garden, allotment or a few pots and window boxes.

‘‘I’ll happily talk to them about the benefits of chemical-free gardening, wildlife friendly-planting schemes or almost anything gardening related.’’

Brenda also uses Bud to help the local community with money-raising events for charities like the Burnage Food Bank and Burnage Good Neighbours.

Her aim is to keep growing Bud. She adds: ‘‘My ambition is to carry on what I do, enjoying my work and making a modest living and learning as I go.

‘‘Success for me isn’t about earning money but earning respect for what I do and, hopefully, making a small difference to people’s lives.’’
