Families can get Christmas gift inspiration with two free foraging workshops at Dobbies' in Royston.

The Grow How session and Little Seedlings Club workshop will focus on cost-saving methods to create gifts and decorations.

Grow How, a 15-minute session taking place at 10.30am on Saturday, November 4, will give gardeners a guide to seasonal activities.

Horticultural experts will demonstrate how gardens can be foraged to create sustainable wreaths and natural decorations for homes and Christmas trees.

The Little Seedlings Club takes place in the morning on Sunday, November 5, and is suitable for children aged four to 10 who are interested in learning about wildlife.


The workshop will explore the changes that happen in the garden during winter, what natural items can be foraged and looking at a history of popular decorative items like wreaths and Christmas trees.

Sessions can be booked online at dobbies.com/events.

Chloë Bell, communications executive at Dobbies', said: "We are always looking for ways we can bring the outside in, there’s no better way to get in the festive spirit than with some craft activities.

"The workshops in Royston are suited for every member of the family, welcoming everyone to come together and decorate the home this Christmas."
