New ambassadors for Dobbies Little Seedlings Club

Dobbies has scouted the country and selected six gardening enthusiasts aged 4-9 to become the new faces of its free monthly Little Seedlings Club.

Dobbies Little Seedlings Club is a fun and educational monthly programme for children aged 4-10 that focuses on gardening, nature and sustainability. Through hands-on activities, children learn about planting and caring for plants and wildlife, as well as the importance of sustainability, while fostering a love for nature and creativity.

The next generation of budding horticulturalists will inspire other club attendees to try their hand at gardening and learn all about plants, wildlife and the natural environment around them. They will participate in the free monthly workshops, write short blogs about their experiences for dobbies.com, feature in photoshoots and support Dobbies’ campaigns.   

The new Little Seedlings Club ambassadors are:

  • Emelia, 7 from Glasgow
  • Ayla, 7 from Suffolk
  • Sophia, 5 from Suffolk
  • Imogen, 9 from Dundee
  • Iniya, 8 from Norfolk
  • Jacob, 4 from Northampton

One of the winners, Emelia, 7 said: “I can’t wait to find out about all the different types of flowers I can grow in the garden and learn about how important plants are to the environment. I’m also looking forward to having fun and meeting new friends.”

Dobbies’ Community and CSR Communications Executive, Chloë Bell was delighted with the response to the ambassador search. She said: “It’s been amazing to see so many young people interested in gardening, wildlife and sustainability. We are proud to announce our new Little Seedlings Club ambassadors. At Dobbies we are passionate about getting people of all ages involved in gardening and we are excited to see the energy and enthusiasm from our newly appointed ambassadors.

“We’ve seen over 14,000 visits to our Little Seedlings Club workshops in the last year and I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t tried it out to head to their local store and give the workshops a go.”
