Delight in Dobbies: Tea and Planting

Calling all foodies and green thumbs in Swindon! Dobbies Garden Centre is set to host an enchanting afternoon tea and planting event this June, following the roaring success of their April sessions. Mark your calendars for June 1st and June 8th at 3pm, as these 90-minute experiences are not to be missed.

For just £40, attendees will indulge in a delightful afternoon tea, featuring an array of sweet and savoury treats. Picture yourself savouring finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and unlimited tea and coffee refills. But the fun doesn’t stop there! The event also includes an interactive planting workshop, where you’ll create a beautiful planter worth £30 to take home.

Led by Dobbies’ expert gardening team, the workshop will guide you through the process of planting up a container from scratch. Using terracotta pots and seasonal plants, you’ll learn valuable tips on plant combinations and aftercare to ensure your creation thrives.

Dobbies’ brand ambassador, Michael Griffiths, attended the first event in April and had nothing but praise. “I went with my family and had a thoroughly fun day out,” he shared. “The afternoon tea was lovely, and then we headed out into the planting area where the Dobbies’ horticultural team guided us through the planting activity. Top tips were then shared on plants that complement one another and aftercare to keep it all thriving.”

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just looking for a unique day out, Dobbies’ afternoon tea and planting event promises a blend of relaxation, learning, and delicious treats. Spaces are limited, so be sure to book your spot soon and prepare for a delightful experience at Dobbies Swindon.
