Spring into action with free bulb plants

DOBBIES garden centre in Milngavie has launched ‘The Big Bulb Plant’ which will see them give away bulbs to brighten up communities.

It is part of the retailer’s Here We Grow campaign, which gives support, equipment and assistance to get Milngavie and Bearsden growing.

Dobbies wants to hear from community groups, projects, schools and charities who need help to brighten up their garden ready for spring.

Ailsa Laing, community champion for, Dobbies Garden World in Milngavie, said: “Last year we helped create colourful spring gardens by donating 500 tulip bulbs to local community gardens, schools, and areas which were in need of a flash of colour

“This year we have doubled the donation to further inspire and encourage our local community to get planting in autumn so everyone can enjoy brightly-coloured outdoor space during spring.

“Autumn is the perfect time to plant bulbs which will create an array of colour throughout the spring. So whether you’re a school, community organisation, local charity, hospital or care centre looking to brighten up your garden or even just a few planted containers, we want to hear from you.”
