Dobbies’ bulb offer to Midlothian groups

As part of its commitment to the local community, Lasswade-based Dobbies Garden World is looking to donate spring flowering bulbs to community groups, charities or schools looking to light up their gardens ahead of spring 2013.

Dobbies ‘Big Bulb Plant’ is part of the retailers community campaign Here We Grow, which gives support, equipment and assistance to the local community to get growing.

Following the success of last year’s ‘Big Bulb Plant’ which saw Dobbies community champions donate more than 30,000 bulbs throughout the UK, Dobbies wants to hear from local community groups, projects, schools and charities who need help to brighten up their garden ready for spring.

Dawn Gibson, community champion for Dobbies, said: “The Big Bulb Plant is one of our most successful campaigns and really does light up our area in the spring.

“This year we aim to inspire and encourage our local community to get involved and are giving away daffodils to ensure a little ray of sunshine next spring.”

To put your group forward for consideration, you should send an email to Dawn at, or for more information, visit the website –
