Free sustainable Grow How session in Preston

Looking for the ideal gardening gift for a loved one this Christmas? Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre, is hosting a free Grow How session in its Preston store to show customers the top gardening gifts and winter plants to choose for loved ones this festive season.

The interactive Grow How session will be held on Saturday 3 December in Dobbies’ Preston store and is suitable for both beginners and seasoned gardeners. Dobbies’ horticultural experts will share with customers what outdoor plants are great for gifting this winter and provide tips on how to care for them. Beautiful seasonal outdoor plants like Skimmia rubella, Viburnum tinus, winter flowering Heathers and Bay trees all make wonderful gifts.

Christmas gifting inspiration continues for the second part of the session where team members will suggest gifts that you can include in a gardening hamper. Seeds and growing kits, an array of bulbs and tools like a hand trowel, hand fork, wooden labels and string are all top of Dobbies’ list. A gardening hamper is not complete without a pair of gloves and trusted secateurs – a popular tool for those looking to keep on top of garden maintenance. Dobbies’ experts will be on hand to answer any questions and demonstrate how the great value tools can be used.

Dobbies’ Horticultural Director, Marcus Eyles, said: “The festivities are in full swing at Dobbies’ Preston store and we’re excited to bring you a Christmas-packed Grow How session around gifting.

“It’s a time to give back to our friends and loved ones, and what better way to do so, than to gift them a beautiful plant or create a personalised gardening hamper with great value they need to get started. Sustainable gardening is a big part of our Grow How sessions and we’ll be telling you about our brilliant range of products that are great for the garden and kind to the environment.

“Our monthly Grow How sessions are really popular with our customers in Preston and we’re eager to help our customers get into the festive spirit and get creative with gifting this year.”
