A GARDEN centre retailer has announced two upcoming virtual events to help Dorset gardeners elevate their own green spaces this summer.

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, has a garden centre in Dorchester and will be hosting a series of popular virtual events.

Both of the events will be hosted by Dobbies’ horticultural director and gardening expert, Marcus Eyles, and will provide top tips and expert advice on making the most of your outdoor space, to ensure you can enjoy it all summer long.

During both events, Mr Eyles will provide live demonstrations of techniques to elevate your gardening skills, and attendees from Dorset are invited to submit their questions for Marcus too, to get expert answers to any horticultural dilemmas.

Mr Eyles said: "I am very much looking forward to sharing my knowledge and offering advice to Dorset gardeners old and new, to help them elevate even the smallest of gardens into an oasis to enjoy, and to help them choose plants that will not only brighten the space for years to come, but will also support the environment and local wildlife.”
