... I was not too impressed, why should I get up early on a lazy Saturday to go to a garden centre? I was dragged along to the Cirencester store preparing to be bored stiff but much to my surprise I was impressed! What is Dobbies? Dobbies was founded by James Dobbie born in 1817. He started ...

More than just a garden centre

Advantages Wide range of goods, service, food

DisadvantagesNot enough stores, can be pricey

"...the business has expanded vastly. Dobbies is now a chain of 19 garden centres. So it's just a garden centre? As well as a wide range of garden products there is also a fresh food hall for locally produced food, an aquatic department and a great restaurant. First impressions: It is a pleasant looking (and eco friendly) wooden and glass building on the outskirts of Cirencester. Dobbies is clearly marked on the outside and there is a nice water ..."

Quick review of Dobbies Garden Centre

"Wow , just been there today and was shocked to see how expensive it all was, yes its the nicest garden centre I can say I have been to , very well laid out, but it was desolate, hardware anyone on a weeday at 5:30. Probably because of prices, for example bamboo screening 40 quid while same thing in BandQ was 25 quid. I also bought plants in Aldi £1.69 for the tray, exactly the same ones were over £4 per tray in dobbies. shocked to say the least, this is the first review I have written but I thought I had to. In summary a great garden centre if money is not object, however if you shop around you will be shocked at how expensive it really is.

AdvantagesGreat layout, knowledgeable staff, delicious food

DisadvantagesOnly 24 in the country - might be a fair hike for your nearest one

"I'm really impressed with Dobbies Garden Centre! My local centre has been around for at least 50 years (my gran used to go there!) but it still looks brand new. They've got a great restaurant there, with enough food to really bowl you over. My girls loved the acquatics area, with dozens of different fish tank set-ups, and loads of things to add to your tank, whatever the size. The plants area is excellent - much nicer than your local B&Q - and with ..." Read review

Snowtime 140 Indoor Christmas Lights Review with images

AdvantagesRapid delivery from Dobbies, price,

DisadvantagesNone

"...are superb! Bought online from Dobbies Garden Centre on Sunday and they arrived today! Great service from Dobbies and I'm sure these lights will brighten up Christmas around the house, whether on the tree, around the fireplace or around the windows. These might actually be a decent investment for every room, at such a reasonable price and the brightness of the bulbs. I'm more enthusiastic about the level of service from Dobbies Garden Centres ..." Read review
