Green gar­den ad­vice on of­fer at cen­tre

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Councilelections -

GAR­DEN­ERS can get hints and tips on how to keep their lawn green dur­ing the hosepipe ban at a gar­den cen­tre.

Dob­bies Gar­den Cen­tre in Hamp­ton will be hold­ing gar­den­ing ad­vice ses­sions to­mor­row, to help green-fin­gered res­i­dents make the most of their gar­den this sum­mer.

Beat The Drought will be part of Dob­bies’ on­go­ing Gar­den Grow-how se­ries of talks which take place ev­ery Satur­day and Sun­day be­tween 11am and 2pm.

The talks cover a wide range of gar­den­ing top­ics, in­clud­ing ev­ery­thing from how to grow veg­eta­bles in a win­dow box to plant­ing the per­fect hang­ing bas­ket.

Tony Cuth­bert, gen­eral man­ager at Dob­bies Gar­den World, said: “The tem­po­rary ban on hosepipes does not pro­hibit gar­den­ing, nor does it stop be­low us­ing water in their gar­den.

“We felt that a huge amount of ad­vice cur­rently avail­able to the public is about what gar­den­ers can’t do dur­ing the ban, so our Beat the Drought talks are in­tended to show them what they can do.”
