Children from Wiltshire are invited to become little seedlings ambassadors as Dobbies celebrates national children’s gardening week.

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, has announced the online relaunch of its much-loved little seedlings club, to support and celebrate national children’s gardening week (29 May – 6 June).

Packed with activities, tutorials and educational content, the little seedlings club is aimed at Wiltshire children aged 4 to 10 years old, and in its refreshed and enhanced online format, will provide plenty of fun gardening and crafting projects.

The club previously ran in the Swindon store, but workshops haven’t been able to take place in person since March 2020. The relaunched online format provides a fantastic way for budding young Wiltshire gardeners to learn all about plants, wildlife, the environment and sustainability, while supplying them with an abundance of fun facts and top tips to impress their friends.

Marcus Eyles, horticultural director of Dobbies, said: “Our little seedlings club has always been hugely popular in our Swindon store, and so we are very pleased to be able to relaunch the club in a virtual format, marking national children’s gardening week.

“At Dobbies, we are passionate about helping communities to enjoy spending time outdoors and get growing, and who could be better than the next generation of gardeners? We hope that the relaunched little seedlings club will educate, inform and inspire a whole new host of young gardeners.”

Available for free on the Dobbies website, little seedlings will offer a mix of topical online content, including fact sheets, educational guides, activity sheets and suggestions for ways to put green fingers to work, with topics spanning everything from creating bug hotels and DIY seed bombs, to learning about composting, plant life-cycles and the anatomy of flowers, plus an array of weird and wonderful facts.
