Dobbies expands own brand horticultural lines

by | Mar 6, 2024 | Centre News, News, Product News | 0 comments

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre, is introducing 69 new own brand product lines across horticultural categories this month including gardening tools, indoor grow lights and a diverse selection of new bulbs. They are part of the own brand range, which features 700 own brand items across the gardening range, increasing from 200 lines last year.

The expanded range responds to the growing demand from UK shoppers for quality own brand products at affordable prices. A recent study by packaging manufacturer Amcor found that 70% of respondents regularly buy private label products.

There are 35 new bulb varieties that can be planted from now, including an exclusive Dahlia Bright Eyes which is only available to Dobbies’ customers. These are priced from £4.99 or 3 for £12.

Supporting inclusive gardening, Dobbies has launched own brand grow lights. These stylish, innovative and practical indoor gardening lights, support plant growth and mean people can garden even without an outside space. They support the trend for grow your own, where Dobbies has seen steady growth since 2020, as well as houseplant care. There are six new lines that are landing in store from late March, priced from £16.99, which were officially launched at the Horticultural Trades Association’s Garden Press Event on 20 February.

We have been working hard to make sure that this year we have even more great quality own brand products that we can be proud of, and are available to customers at affordable prices. The right gardening toolkit can make the world of a difference and these new lines provide high quality essentials for those looking to bring garden living to life in 2024.”
