Due to high demand, Dobbies' Royston store is reintroducing its afternoon tea and planting experience with more available dates.

The 90-minute event will now take place on Saturday, June 1 and Saturday, June 8 at 3pm.

The tea features an array of tasty treats like finger sandwiches, Dobbies' famous scones, and succulent sweet treats.

Following the tea, a hands-on gardening workshop invites guests to create their own planter, guided by a Dobbies' gardening expert.

Dobbies’ brand ambassador, Michael Griffiths, who attended the first event in April with his family, said: "Dobbies Afternoon Tea and Planting Experience was fantastic. I went with my family and had a thoroughly fun day out.


"The afternoon tea was lovely and then we headed out into the planting area where the Dobbies’ horti team guided us through the planting activity, where everyone created the container with plants that appealed to them.

"Top tips were then shared on plants that complement one another and aftercare to keep it all thriving. I especially loved this part of the day, seeing everyone’s creativity."

Each participant will get to take their £30 planter home. Tickets cost £40 per person and can be booked at www.dobbies.com/events.
