Dobbies is hosting a free Grow How session in its Gosforth store with a live demonstration on how to grow your own fruit bowl.

Ideal for beginners, and with Q & A time also good for seasoned gardeners, Dobbies’ Grow How interactive workshop will take place in Gosforth on Saturday 3 September at 10:30am.

Garden experts will spend time demonstrating how customers can grow their own blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and apples, as well as showcasing the various gardening tools required. The experts will also provide tips and tricks on how to best care for fruit trees, as well as chart the journey from seedling to fruit and answer any questions customers may have.

Ever committed to sustainability, this Dobbies’ workshop will emphasise the benefits of using peat-free compost, organic feeds and safer pest control products.

Sarah Murray, Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, said: “At Dobbies we are committed to doing our part to care for the planet and ensure a better tomorrow. We’re encouraging customers to attend this free workshop to not only plant and harvest delicious fruit, but also to pass the knowledge on to friends and family so they can also grow their own.”
