Running throughout Spring, the expert sessions will be hosted by Dobbies’ Horticultural Director, Marcus Eyles, live from his own garden.

Marcus will provide viewers with engaging tips and tricks, tutorials and live demonstrations across a variety of topics, to help gardeners make the most of their outdoor spaces.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly and gain the expertise required to create an Instagrammable garden, no matter its size.

On April 10 the topic will be ‘Healthy Soil Grows Better Crops’, April 24 will consider ‘Lawns and Wildlife’ , and there will be even more events announced by Dobbies in the near future.

Marcus Eyles, Horticultural Director at Dobbies, said; “Over the past year, more of us than ever before have discovered a love of gardening and experienced the ways that it enriches our lives and improves our wellbeing.

“Gardening is something we can all enjoy, no matter how large or small our outdoor spaces, and we are delighted to be launching this series of virtual events.

“We hope that they will inspire and help gardeners old and new to learn the skills and techniques they need to take their gardens to the next level.”

The sessions are free of charge and exclusively available to Dobbies Club members.

For those who aren’t yet members of Dobbies Club, membership is free and signing up is quick and simple, giving access to a variety of benefits, special offers and exclusive events.
