The frost may be setting in but the UK’s leading garden centre, Dobbies, is looking ahead to brighter days and has unveiled an exclusive first look at its Spring Summer 2022 collection.

Not your average garden centre, the carefully curated ranges from Dobbies’ team of experts, has something to suit every style, size and budget. Dobbies’ 2022 outdoor living collection builds on the trend of blurring the line between indoors and out and celebrates the flexibility of our outdoor living spaces, with a whole host of new ranges and enhancements to customer favourites.

Lynsey Abbott, Senior Buyer at Dobbies commented:

“We’re delighted to unveil an exclusive preview of our Spring Summer 2022 collection that we’re confident has something for everyone. Our vision for this collection was to celebrate our outdoor spaces, no matter their size or location, and build on the importance of your garden being a sociable space and extension of your home.

“Whether you use your outdoor space for dining, relaxing or spending time with family, the new collection will allow you to maximise your space and make the most of its flexibility, no matter your style.

“From laid back dining sets, perfect for alfresco family meals, to contemporary drinks trolleys and bar sets to take your garden parties to the next level, the Spring Summer 2022 collection promises to help you make the most of your outdoor space, be it a balcony, courtyard, compact corner or sprawling lawn.”
