Dobbies garden centre in Hyde Road is inviting plant enthusiasts to a special festive Grow How session.

The free session will enable customers to immerse themselves in the Christmas spirit and learn how to look after Poinsettias through the festive season.

This event will take place on Saturday 2 December at 10.30am, and plant enthusiasts and novices alike are welcome to discover the magic of Poinsettias and how the bright houseplant, which comes in a variety of colours, can enhance their home this Christmas.

Dobbies’ gardening experts in Swindon will be on hand to showcase different varieties of Poinsettias and advise on selecting the right one from varieties including Cinnamon, Marble, Christmas Beauty and Sky Star.

Dobbies’ Grow How session will provide tips on care, the importance of a bright spot with at least six hours of indirect sunlight per day, feeding and the top pruning techniques.

Dobbies’ Senior Houseplant Buyer, Claire Bishop, loves how these plants can transform the look and feel of any space in the home. She said: “Poinsettias are a great way to adorn your home with bright pops of colour this Christmas. 

"We all know and love the classic red, but we are excited to shine some light on the other varieties of Poinsettias during our Grow How session in Swindon that will bring vibrancy to your decorations this Christmas."
