A free sustainable 'Grow How' session will be held on Saturday, 4 March at Dobbies' Hyde Road garden centre.
It is billed as idea for anybody seeking a cost-effective way to grow their own fruit and vegetables - and enjoy bumper crops.
Running from 10:30am, the interactive session has been carefully designed for gardeners of all skill levels, from beginners to experts.
Dobbies’ horticultural experts will demonstrate the best way of growing big crops, focusing on tomatoes and hearty vegetables.
Participants will learn how to identify and select appropriate plant varieties, how to prepare them for sowing and the best times of the year for planting fruit and vegetables.
They'll also learn about the correct tools to use and how to nurture plants from seedlings all the way through to harvesting.
Sarah Murray, Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, said: “At Dobbies we are always looking for ways to inspire people to get into gardening.
"In addition to being beneficial for the environment, growing your own has been shown to improve physical wellbeing and mental health – and it’s a fantastic way to watch your food spend.
"Customers in Swindon are encouraged to stop by and attend this free workshop where they’ll learn how to plant and harvest delicious fresh produce.”
