Grow along with Dobbies Milngavie

DOBBIES Garden World in Milngavie has announced that £2000 will be invested in the local area through its Here We Grow campaign.

The scheme, launched last year, is dedicated to getting local people off the couch and into the garden - to get their hands dirty and start growing.

The Milngavie garden centre is keen to hear from community groups, projects, schools and charities who need help to plant and grow in their gardens. They can apply for support, equipment and assistance to help them get started.

Ailsa Laign, of Dobbies Milngavie, said: “We’ve had great success with Here We Grow in the last year, with projects such as donating spring flowering bulbs to local primary schools and community groups and creating a vegetable garden at Baljaffray Nursery.”

If you would like to put your group forward to be considered for support, (including if you’re a national charity looking for support on a local level), write to the Dobbies Community Champion by e-mail at herewegrowmilngavie@dobbies.com. For more information, visit www.dobbies.com
