Today’s the day … it’s our “Growing Together” plant giveaway in celebration of National Children’s Gardening Week.

We have teamed up with 3 stores in Dumfries who have kindly allowed us space to distribute our free plants. It was important to us not to encourage people to go somewhere they weren’t meant to be during lockdown.

So plants will be available from our “Free Plants” stalls at:

  • Tesco Extra (Cuckoo Bridge) from 9.30 onwards
  • The Range from 10am onwards
  • Aldi (Annan Road) from 11am onwards

Please maintain social distancing while choosing plants to stay safe and well. We hope you’ll share photos with us of your new plants in their new home, so we can enjoy “Growing Together”.
