Looking for a cost-effective way to grow your own fruit and vegetables?
Dobbies, the UK's leading garden centre, is hosting a free Grow How session in its Lisburn store to help people prepare for bumper crops.
Taking place on the first Saturday of every month at 10:30am, the interactive sessions have been carefully designed for gardeners of all skill levels, from beginners to experts. Dobbies’ horticultural experts will demonstrate the best way of growing bumper crops, focusing on tomatoes and hearty vegetables.
Participants in Lisburn will learn how to identify and select the appropriate plant variety, as well as how to prepare them for sowing. They'll also learn about the best time of year to plant fruit and vegetables, the correct tools to use, and how to nurture the plants from seedlings right the way through to the harvest.
Sarah Murray, Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, said: “At Dobbies we are always looking for ways to inspire people to get into gardening. In addition to being beneficial for the environment, growing your own has been shown to improve physical wellbeing and mental health – and it’s a fantastic way to watch your food spend. Customers in Lisburn are encouraged to stop by and attend this free workshop where they’ll learn how to plant and harvest delicious fresh produce.”
