The afternoon at Dobbies started with a delightful indulgence of finger sandwiches, beautiful scones and very naughty cream cakes, washed down with pots of tea and coffee.Craig Dennett, Dobbies Horticultural Manager demonstrated how to create a beautiful cottage garden tub and hanging basket.
It was a really useful demonstration, giving us plenty of tips and introducing pretty fragrant perennials that many of us have never considered using in baskets and tubs before. They were gorgeous.
These beautiful creations were raffled off at the end of the afternoon, we were green with envy of the two lucky winners Christine Burns and Jan Williams who were delighted with their prizes.
A really enjoyable afternoon had by all. We look forward to a return to Dobbies later in the year
